Theresa May admits freedom of movement could continue after Brexit

LONDON, march 29, 2017- Theresa May has admitted freedom of movement could continue in some form after Britain has officially left the EU. 

The Prime Minister said it might go on as the UK puts in place new arrangements during a transitional period.

Ms May was speaking at the end of a momentous day in British politics when the UK formally notified Brussels of its intention to leave the bloc.

She also said the “implementation phase” of the Brexit negotiation could see the UK continue to fall under the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice past the official cut-off date of March 2019.

“We want to make sure that we are ending the jurisdiction of the European court of justice and that we are able to control movement of people coming from the EU,” the PM said during a special BBC programme on Brexit.

“We want to have the agreements done in two years.”

But she added: “There may then be a period in which we are implementing those arrangements.

“If there are different visa arrangements that need to be put in place, the government here and the government elsewhere will have to have their systems working so that it can operate.

“So there may be a period where we have got to implement the decisions that have been taken.”

Her admission that freedom of movement between the UK and the rest of the EU may continue after the two-year negotiation will anger the right-wing of the Tory party who had hoped for all ties with Brussels to cut immediately after Brexit.

But it will be seen as an acknowledgement of the complexity of the deal that needs to be struck, which has been repeatedly downplayed by Brexiteers.(www.indipendent.co.uk)
