- Theresa May says the UK will be free to strike trade deals with other partners around the world.
"This goes well beyond WTO commitments."
The UK will be leaving the Common Agricultural Policy and will be a free coastal state once again, she says.

Theresa May says when a final deal is agreed she will bring it to Parliament and will ask MPs "to think in the national interest, give it their backing".
She says "voting against would take us back to square one".
Theresa May says the British people want MPs to "get on with other issues" such as creating jobs, helping families with the cost of living and providing a "brighter future for our country".
She says "the choice is clear: choose to leave with no deal, risk no Brexit at all, or we can choose to unite and support the best deal that can be negotiated".
"This deal ends free movement, takes back control of our borders, laws and money, and delivers an independent foreign and defence policy while continuing the security cooperation to keep our people safe."
She says "this delivers the British people's wish."
"I choose to do what's best in the interest of the British people." #BREXIT #BBC #NEWS
