Theresa May will set out Brexit transition plan in her Europe speech this month
September 8, 2017

UK prime minister, Theresa May, is reportedly planning to use a major speech in Europe this month to lay out her proposals for a “no cliff-edge” Brexit transition deal. MPs have argued this week that any interim agreement must be “as close as possible” to current relations with the EU.

A few days after this speech, the Prime Minister will deliver a memo at the Conservative party conference, promising Eurosceptics that her end goal is still to deliver a “clean” Brexit.

About 35 Eurosceptic Conservative MPs signed a letter this week warning the prime minister against a transition deal that would keep Britain in the EU “by stealth”.
