What we would be doing is working for the best deal for the United Kingdom. Yes, the voters message on the 23rd of June was clearly that they didn't want to see free movement continue as it has done up to now. They wanted some control in movement of people from the European Union into the United Kingdom.
But we also want to get the best deal possible for trade in goods and services with the EU, and I intend to go out there and be ambitious. And I think there is a benefit, not just for the United Kingdom, of a good deal in trades and goods and services, but a benefit for Europe as well.
What the British people voted for on the 23rd of June was to bring some control into the movement of people from the European Union into the UK. A points based system does not give you that control.
