Commenting, the former Conservative Cabinet Minister and leading supporter of Open Britain, Anna Soubry MP, said:
“We are none the wiser about the Government’s plans after David Davis’s statement. An optimistic tone is not enough and the phrase “Brexit means Brexit” has surely passed its shelf life. It’s time for some detail.
“Workers and businesses want to know much more about the Government’s direction of travel. Our economy and security depend on it.
“David Davis himself said membership of and access to the Single Market are different. He is right. Access is available to anyone but would impose trade barriers – costing jobs and investment – whereas membership is by far the best deal for Britain.”
