Andrew Bridgen calls on the PM to secure a better EU deal than Canada got

5th March 2018

Following the Prime Minister’s statement on the UK/EU future economic partnership, Andrew Bridgen calls for a much better deal with the EU than Canada got when taking into consideration the generous divorce package offered by the UK and the fact that post-Brexit the UK will be the biggest export market for EU goods.

Canada did not pay anything for its comprehensive free trade deal with the EU. Given that we will be the biggest export market for EU goods after we leave and are offering a very generous divorce package, contingent on a deal, does my right hon. Friend agree that we should be expecting and demanding a much better deal than Canada got?

I am clear, and have said several times, that the relationship we already have with the EU is such that we are in a different position from Canada. We can have a free trade agreement and economic partnership that goes well beyond that which the EU negotiated with Canada.
