Brexit Secretary David Davis criticised the European Union’s decision to publish a document that shows it has the power to restrict British access to the single market during a transition period after it leaves the bloc.
“I do not think it was in good faith to publish a document with frankly discourteous language and actually implying that they could arbitrarily terminate, in effect, the implementation period,” Davis told Sky News.
“That’s not what the aim of this exercise is, it’s not in good faith, we think it was unwise to publish that.”
