May's cabinet reaches consensus on Brexit plan

London (dpa) - The British government has reached consensus on a new plan regarding its future relationship with the European Union after it leaves the bloc next year, 10 Downing Street announced.

The resolution after the one-day meeting of British Prime Minister Theresa May's cabinet foresees the creation of a free-trade area for goods between Britain and the EU. To protect cross-border trade, Britain will ensure that all goods are made under EU standards.
The government plans to place limits in other sectors including capital, workers and services. With the limits, London wants to prevent EU citizens' unhindered access and go its own way in significant service sectors.
The plan is likely to be met with scepticism in Brussels.
