Liam Fox has said that EU free movement must end by 2019, as it was one of the key reasons behind the public’s decision to vote leave.
‘We made it clear that control of our own borders was one of the elements we wanted in the referendum, and unregulated free movement would seem to me not to keep faith with that decision’.
‘I am very happy to discuss whatever transitional arrangements and whatever implementation agreement we might want, but that has to be an agreement by the cabinet’.
These comments come after Chancellor Philip Hammond said that ‘It will be some time before we are able to introduce full migration controls between the UK and the European Union’, and that a transitional deal may continue up to 2022.
