We want to have reached an agreement about our future partnership, which will cover issues such as fisheries, by the time the two-year Article 50 process has concluded.

We seek a new and equal partnership – between an independent, self-governing, Global Britain and our friends and allies in the EU. As we negotiate that partnership, we will be driven by some simple principles: we will provide as much certainty and clarity as we can at every stage.
