We have already begun discussions with the EU negotiating team on our Future Economic Partnership and Future Security Partnership.

This builds on the joint publication of the topics for discussion on the future framework. These topics for discussion cover aspects of the economic and security partnerships outlined by the Prime Minister, including discussions on agriculture and food.

Both sides remain committed to reaching agreement on the terms of our future partnership by October.
