Official Brexit negotiating strategy revealed

The Brexit Secretary is laying out out the Government's negotiating strategy for leaving the European Union in an official plan.

The document expands on Theresa May's Brexit speech last month, in which she set out a 12-point plan for dealing with the UK departure from the bloc.

The proposals set out the Government's commitment to controlling immigration and leaving the single market.

In her Lancaster House speech, which forms the basis for the White Paper, the PM said: "This Government has a plan for Britain - one that gets us the right deal abroad but also ensures we get a better deal for ordinary working people at home."

On Wednesday, MPs backed, by a majority of 384, the Article 50 bill that allows the Prime Minister to trigger EU divorce proceedings and start negotiations.

But it came amid a warning from the former UK ambassador to EU, Sir Ivan Rogers, that the Government could face a ˆ60bn (ˆ51bn) bill from the EU just to get out of the exit door.
