Britain is ready to respect the right to free movement of citizens of the EU after Brexit
However, the government stresses that Brexit would allow UK to control its borders
According to her, the first phase of “implementation” will begin as soon as agreement is reached on the output, but businesses and governments will need some time to adjust to the new rules.
“Once we make a deal as soon as you agree on what will be a new relationship, will need to allocate time when business and government fit system and so on, depending on the nature of the transaction”, – she explained.
The statement may explicitly leaves open the possibility of free movement, at least temporary.
However, the government stresses that Brexit would allow UK to control its borders.
Speaking to reporters during a visit to Jordan and Saudi Arabia, the Prime Minister said: “What is especially important for the British public, which voted last year – they wanted the confidence that we can control our borders and to control immigration. This is what we do when we leave the EU”.
Freedom of movement in labor force is one of the key principles of the EU, involving not only the free movement of workers, but also the abolition of any employment discrimination for those who came from other countries-members of the Union.
