Keep the UK out of the single market

Last updated 3 years ago

We will keep the UK out of the single market...

Conservative Party Manifesto 2019, p.5

Our verdict

  • This is a pledge to keep the UK out of the European single market, which guarantees free movement of goods, services, capital and labour between EU member states, as well as five non-EU countries, currently including the UK.
  • The Withdrawal Agreement negotiated with the EU required the UK to leave the single market after the transition period, and the government legislated to implement that agreement.
  • As of 11pm on 31 December 2020, the UK is out of the EU single market. This policy is ‘done’.

There's always room for debate

We’re serious about providing clear, up-to-date, non-partisan information. We focus on being consistent and fair in how we reach our verdicts, and always explain our reasoning. But there is always room for debate. So if you see it differently, we’d love you to tell us why. Or even better, submit an edit.
