PM Theresa May has said there should be a transition period of “about” two years after Brexit, during which trade should continue on current terms.
EU migrants will still be able to live and work in the UK but they will have register with the authorities, under her proposals.
And the UK will pay into the EU budget so member states are not left out of pocket.
She hopes this offer, made in a speech in Italy, will unblock Brexit talks.
The EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier described the speech as “constructive” and said the prime minister had shown “a willingness to move forward”.-UNS/BBC
