Jonathan Djanogly asks the Government about negotiating for access to the single market


17th January 2017

Jonathan Djanogly asks the Government about “red lines” in negotiation for how much we would pay for access to the EU single market post-Brexit.

Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con)

As the Secretary of State said, giving up our membership of the EU and the single market is not incompatible with our negotiating access to the single market, either in whole or in part, but has he yet considered the red lines he might put down on what we pay for such access?

Mr Davis

I have considered them, but the idea that I might talk about them is another matter. There is a naive belief in modern politics that we have to establish, in some butch way, red lines. If we were to establish a red line, we would invite those with whom we are negotiating to make that red line very expensive. I do not therefore intend to get into the business of laying out red lines here, there and everywhere; I intend to get the best possible outcome for the country.
