Theresa May under pressure over Brexit  position

London: Theresa May is coming under increasing pressure to set out where she stands on Britain’s future trade agreements, reports BBC.

Speaking at the end of a trade visit to China, the PM said Britain would not face a choice between a free trade deal with the EU after Brexit and striking deals with the rest of the world.

It comes as she has faced criticism from Eurosceptic Tory MPs that she is heading for a “Brexit in name only”.

Asked about her future as PM, Mrs May said she was “not a quitter”.

During the prime minister’s three-day visit to China, Downing Street said more than £9bn of business deals would be signed.  However, Mrs May has faced growing criticism from MPs, including many in her own party, who have called for her to be more specific about her priorities on UK’s future trade arrangements with the EU.

Speaking to the BBC’s political editor Laura Kuenssberg, the prime minister said she had already spelled out what she wants from the deal and did not believe the UK would have to choose between Europe and the rest of the world.
