Theresa May does not want Britain to stay in the single market.
The Prime Minister stated “we will take back control of our laws and put an end to the jurisdiction of the European court in Britain. I want to be clear that what I am proposing cannot mean membership of the single market.”
May promised to push for the “freest possible trade” with European countries and to sign new deals with others around the world.
She also announced Parliament would get to vote on the final deal agreed between the UK and the EU.
