Labour is not advocating for the UK to rejoin the Customs Market but instead, is calling for a new and normalised relationship with the EU.
Shadow Foreign Secretary David Lammy said it’s been over three years since the UK left the EU and there needs to be a “structured dialogue” between the UK and the EU to discuss important issues such as security, climate, artificial intelligence, and China.
However, he ruled out re-entry into the single market and the Customs Union.
Meanwhile, there is speculation that a deal could be announced early next week to resolve issues with the Northern Ireland Brexit Protocol.
Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is expected to meet with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen on Saturday to discuss the agreement.
The leader of the DUP, Sir Jeffrey Donaldson, said that the next generation of the Northern Ireland Protocol depends on the outcome of any deal made between the UK and the EU.
He also called on the EU to “stretch itself” to restore political stability in Northern Ireland.
