United Kingdom vows no 'Mad Max style' deregulation after Brexit

Front Bench: To diverge or not to diverge? David Davis will answer today, but what do you think? Have your say

The 69-year-old also pointed to Theresa May's commitment to maintaining and enhancing workers' rights, Chancellor Philip Hammond's support for a stable European banking system and Environment Secretary Michael Gove's "crusading zeal" on animal welfare as examples of the United Kingdom determination to lead a "race to the top".

He also intends to urge for a maintained strong partnership with the United Kingdom and the European Union on matters that involve principles and laws.

Cabinet ministers are due to meet at a Chequers "away day" on Thursday to thrash out more details on Brexit policy, with the opportunity for Mrs May to announce them in a major speech next week as part of the "Road to Brexit" series from ministers.

"There is no reason whatsoever why we should not be able to exit both the customs union and the single market, whilst maintaining frictionless trade not only north-south in Northern Ireland, but with the rest of continental Europe as well", Johnson said.

"They fear that Brexit could lead to an Anglo-Saxon race to the bottom", he said, according to the BBC.

He is expected to say that shared commitments to high standards will reduce friction post Brexit.

In the latest of several speeches by ministers to lay out Britain's Brexit plans, Davis told business leaders in Austria that fears of Britain plunging into a "Mad Max-style world borrowed from dystopian fiction" after leaving the European Union are unfounded. "These fears about a race to the bottom are based on nothing, not our history, not our intention, not our national interest".

Among the possible consequences were enumerated lowered wages, reduced rights for consultations and bargaining between workers and employers and increased exposure to chemicals and carcinogens - meaning higher risk of getting cancer at the workplace. Michael Gove's crusading zeal for improving animal welfare and environmental standards.

Davis said he wanted to maintain the mutual recognition of British and European regulators.

One of the UK's biggest trading partners has activated a "hard Brexit" plan, recruiting almost a thousand customs officers to deal with new barriers after Brexit.

Despite a desire to leave the single market and customs' union, the United Kingdom wants to have as smooth trade as possible with the EU after March 2019.

The global trade secretary, Liam Fox, will also stress the benefits of high standards in a speech to the manufacturing industry on Tuesday, calling UK-produced goods "a kitemark of quality, innovation and world-leading technological advances".
