The Government continues to undertake a comprehensive programme of analysis in support of our EU exit negotiations and preparations. The Government has confirmed that when we bring forward the vote on the final deal, we will ensure that Parliament is presented with the appropriate analysis to make an informed decision.

The Government has been clear that free movement will end as we leave the EU. We will seek to negotiate an appropriate labour mobility framework with the EU to ensure UK nationals can continue to travel to the EU for business purposes, and vice versa.
