Prime Minister Boris Johnson has negotiated a new deal – this is a real Brexit deal which ensures that we take back control.
This new deal ensures that we take back control of our laws, trade, borders and money without disruption, and provides the basis of a new relationship with the EU based on free trade and friendly cooperation.
Under the previous deal, Brussels had ultimate control and could have forced Britain to accept EU laws and taxes forever. This new deal ensures that voters are in control.
This is a deal which allows us to get Brexit done and leave the EU in two weeks’ time, so we can then focus on the people’s priorities and the country can come together and move on.
We will leave the EU’s Customs Union as one United Kingdom and be able to strike trade deals all around the world.
The Prime Minister has negotiated a new deal so that we can respect the referendum result and get Brexit done on 31 October, without disruption and in a friendly way.
Commenting, Therese Coffey, Secretary of State for the Department of Work and Pensions, said:
“Corbyn’s Pension Tax will see ten million savers facing a huge bill forcing them to delay their retirement for almost three and a half years.
“This is just one of the ways a Corbyn government would hammer hardworking people on top of his plans to hike up taxes by £2,400 a year, as well as the cost of his plan for unlimited immigration and the chaos of 2020 being dominated by two more referendums – one on Brexit and another on Scottish independence.
“Only Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party can get Brexit done with a deal, get parliament working again and turbocharge our economy to unleash Britain’s potential.”
