Brexit negotiator says UK must be able to set its own laws
David Frost has set out the UK’s stance ahead of post-Brexit trade negotiations, due to start next month.
He dismissed the idea an EU court would have a role in future trade disputes, saying: “We only want what other independent countries have.”
It comes as France warns Britain to expect a bruising battle during talks.
Acting Liberal Democrat leader Ed Davey said: “Boris Johnson should listen to the views of British businesses who want to maintain the closest possible alignment with the European Union.”
