Commenting on the Prime Minister’s statement to Parliament after the G20 summit, Pat McFadden MP of the Open Britain campaign, said:
“The Government’s position of giving no clarity may be a result of not knowing what their three Brexit Ministers will say next, but it’s not good enough for the public who deserve to know what direction we are going in following the referendum.
“The question of the Single Market matters to jobs, trade, investment and prosperity.
“We cannot gamble our economic future on a Liam Fox world tour exploring trade deals when countries have already said that settling our relationship with the EU is the priority.
“Any new deals will be more comprehensive if the UK has maximum access to European markets, which means membership of the Single Market.”
