We want the UK to have the greatest possible barrier-free trade with the EU, delivered through a bold and ambitious Free Trade Agreement.

The Prime Minister has set out our intention to negotiate a new customs arrangement with the EU. We have an open mind about the form of that arrangement, but it is in both the UK and EU's interest that cross-border trade be as frictionless as possible. We will be aiming to minimise the impact of any additional customs procedures on goods trade between the UK and EU.
