The Government has been clear that we want the broadest and deepest possible future partnership – covering more sectors and co-operating more fully than any Free Trade Agreement anywhere in the world today. In particular, as confirmed in the Prime Minister’s Mansion House speech, the Government will seek a close association with Euratom. We are pleased that the March European Council agreed guidelines for the next stage of negotiations on this future relationship.
