Mrs May says she wants a “truly global Britain” which will be “more outward-looking than ever before” and will remain “the best friend and neighbour” of the other 27 members of the EU.

But she insists that she is not “seeking to hold on to bits of membership” or to achieve a “partial” or “associate” membership of the EU.
