Labour policy for brexit it to respect the result of the referendum but at the same time to remain in the single market and customs union. If we must have access to the single market and customs union I suggest it be as part of the European Free Trade Association.
We would still have to pay for access but we would still have influence within the EU. The biggest plus would be that we can conclude our own trade deals with other countries, not as a single trading block and at the same time have a free trade arrangement with the EU.
If the minority Conservative government falls from power we need to have a plan right now. We need more details. Time is running out.
The International Policy Commission develops Labour’s international policy. It is responsible for foreign policy, international development, defence and Britain’s future relationship with Europe.
