Brexit: Door 'Still Ajar' For EU Trade Talks, Says Gove

Brexit: Door 'Still Ajar' For EU Trade Talks, Says Gove

The door is "still ajar" for talks with the EU over a post-Brexit trade deal but only if it moves ground in key areas, Michael Gove has said. He said the EU must speed up the negotiations and offer better terms. It comes as the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier will not travel to London for talks tomorrow but will join "remotely, as planned", his team said.

 

Negotiations between the UK and the EU have stalled amid disagreements over fishing access and competition issues. The EU has said it is prepared to "intensify" talks but it would not agree a deal at "any price". The CBI and other business organisations urged the UK government to focus on bridging its differences with the EU, saying a deal was vital to help the post-Covid recovery. They warned that uncertainty about the UK's future trading relationship with its largest market was "chipping away at business resilience" at a time when many firms were being battered by coronavirus.

 

Downing Street said that official negotiations over a future economic partnership were "over" and the UK should "get ready" to trade with the EU from 1 January without a specific agreement. Boris Johnson has accused the EU of resisting the UK's preferred outcome of a deal based on the one the bloc has with Canada. The prime minister has said the UK should now be prepared for the alternative of a much more limited relationship, based on the EU's existing arrangements with Australia.

 

However, this would see tariffs applied on goods crossing the channel once the UK leaves the EU's single market at the end of the year, pushing up the cost of imports and exports.
