I'll set out in due course the steps I intend to take next. Scotland and England should always trade freely with each other. It's in our mutual benefit.

Sylvie Goulard

We need to move away from discussions where abstract, short term national interests prevail to a broader picture of the common interest, ensuring we all benefit from the single

I might put forward the timescale I think makes sense, and if she doesn't agree with that then we should discuss what the alternative might be.

While we export a lot to the EU, we buy most of our components and raw materials from distributors within the UK (although most of these are imported from elsewhere). Leaving the single market would disrupt supply chains affecting many UK businesses, not just

Owen Jones

Not just content to lead us out of the EU, Theresa May is also bringing us closer to Saudi Arabia, despite the terror and suffering it inflicts. Does “Brexit mean Brexit”, or does “Brexit means Britain should cosy up even more to murderous human rights abusers?” Our government is already a serial cheerleader of gruesome regimes: now a grubby arms dealer at their service, too. But as Theresa May prostrates Britain before her head-chopping friends in Saudi Arabia, her strategy is clear. Abandoning the vast single market across the Channel doesn’t just mean reducing Britain to the status of lapdog to the woman-groping Muslim-bashing demagogue across the Atlantic. It means an ever-closer relationship to regimes which inflict suffering on people inside and outside their own

Michael Fallon

We have made it clear that we are leaving the European Union, we are leaving the single market, we are leaving the customs union, and we will no longer be a part of the ambit of the ECJ. But it is also clear that we have to avoid a cliff edge – we need to give businesses the certainty that they need that there won't suddenly be a difference the day after we leave and day before. We will do everything we can to avoid a cliff edge so there will be for some sectors inevitably implementation

Fabian Picardo

There is absolutely no chance that Gibraltar is going to be bartering its British sovereignty, in exchange for continued access to the European Single Market or any one of the other advantages we enjoy as members of the European

Sarah Hewin - Standard Chartered

We're starting to see some businesses already making contingency plans about opening up in a different EU country. I think that the deadline for many businesses is going to be by next March. If there's only one year to go between potentially losing access to the single market, then businesses will need to know one way or another and if there's still uncertainty at that point, say March 2018, then I think that contingency plans will be

Sarah Hewin - Standard Chartered

The EU is the U.K.'s most important trading partner. If we can continue to get some access to the single market that's going to be very important for a lot of businesses that have invested in the U.K. with a view really to having access to the EU market. It's unlikely that we're going to get a trade deal done in two years'

Susan Kramer

David Davis has already gone back on his assurances that British firms would continue to enjoy all the benefits of single market membership in his post-Brexit utopia. Now reality is starting to intervene, with JP Morgan reportedly looking to move 1,000 jobs out of London. This follows Lloyd's of London saying it will open an office in Brussels due to Brexit and become, at least in part, Lloyd's of

Nicola Sturgeon

Closer to home, the triggering of article 50 is also politically and constitutionally reckless. The full effects on Northern Ireland, which currently faces the possible reintroduction of direct rule, remain to be seen. Similarly, there has been no serious attempt to engage with compromise proposals that would keep Scotland - which voted decisively to remain in Europe - inside the single

Fran Burwell - European Union

It's going to be tough for the British. I think that they're going to find that it's very difficult to achieve what they want and to not be part of the single market. she expects companies that are in the U.K. because they want easy access to the EU are going to rethink their location. She thinks they may move all or part of their operations to Germany or Ireland. It's a long way away before they have these trade deals that they are kind of pinning their future

Tim Farron

Quitting the single market while keeping immigration at current levels and smearing all criticism of rock-hard Brexit as treachery – that seems to be the plan. Theresa May’s tactic is clear: to accuse anyone who dares question her headlong, blindfold charge towards hard Brexit of being democracy deniers. This despite it looking increasingly likely that the result of her reckless, divisive Brexit will be to leave the single market and not reduce immigration – the very opposite of what Brexiteers pitched to the

Michel Barnier

While the 27 member states will find it easier to adjust - as they will still benefit from the Single Market, the customs union and more than 60 trade deals with their international partners - we believe it is in the best interests of both sides to reach a deal on the UK's orderly withdrawal from the EU. We must protect the rights of the 4.5m citizens who have found themselves faced with an uncertain future in the place they call

Terry Scuoler

Undermining the building blocks of this relationship [with the EU] – the single market and the customs union – without any other supportive structure in place would undoubtedly hurt our industry and condemn us to a painful and costly Brexit. The idea of being able to walk away empty-handed might be a negotiating tactic, but it would in reality deliver a risky and expensive blow. The rhetoric from the UK government needs to focus instead on achieving a deal that will work for the UK and the

Keir Starmer

All these tests are tests that at one stage or the other the government has said it is prepared to meet, and therefore it's impossible for them that they cannot be met, including the single market test – those are David Davis' words. They are tough tests, but we are talking about the future of the UK in the EU and the

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

On the fourth, immigration, free movement is integral to the EU's single market, which the UK has always strongly supported, and is a right with clear limits. Furthermore, most immigration to the UK comes from outside the EU, where policy is made by the UK alone. It is also the UK that decides on the structural economic issues that have led to high demand from British employers for migrant labour. I told him: 'Do not invite others to leave, because if the EU collapses, you will have another war in the western

Mike Cherry

Small firms trade with countries based on ease, cost and value and any future trade deal must deliver on these key aspects both with the EU single market and non-EU markets. The top non-EU countries of choice for trade deals include the US and China. However, the reality is that the EU single market is still a crucial market for smaller firms and cannot be undervalued. Compared to larger companies, small businesses typically work to tighter margins with limited resources, meaning changes to the trading landscape will hit them disproportionately

Nicola Sturgeon

There is no queue to join the European Union and we have several voices over recent time saying that if Scotland wanted to be in the EU then there would be a very open warm reception for that. I don't think that is reasonable because by that point Scotland has been taken out of the EU, two years have elapsed, presumably there is divergence opening up between the rules of the European Union, the single market and where the UK is going. I think it gets much hard for Scotland to take a different

Tony Blair

I didn't understand how complicated this is going to be. If they're going to try and deliver exactly the same benefits as we have now in the single market and customs union, this is an endeavour of unparalleled complexity. People start to think is this really going to be the thing that is going to be important. And then when you look at Scotland you see another strain on the constitution of the country as a

Gordon Brown

That is the consequence of independence now. That is a more extreme and hard-line position to exit the British single market as well as the United

Nicola Sturgeon

The UK is about to turn its back on membership of the world's biggest single market. Imagine what will happen if Scotland chooses to stay – we will become a magnet for talent and investment from all across the UK. So let me issue this open invitation today. Scotland isn't full up. If you are as appalled as we are at the path this Westminster government is taking, come and join us. Come here to live, work, invest or study. Come to Scotland – and be part of building a modern, progressive, outward-looking, compassionate

Enda Kenny

Ireland is an important bridge between the US and the EU. Post Brexit, Ireland will be the only English-speaking country in the EU, at the heart of the Single Market with unfettered access for companies, and in the

Len McCluskey - Unite

With discussions set to start on the replacement of models such as Vauxhall's Astra and decisions due on BMW 's electric Mini, it is vital that Government ministers calm nerves by stating they will secure tariff-free access to the European single market and customs union in Brexit negotiations. This must also be backed up with investment in the UK's supply chain and new technology to ensure the UK remains a world leader in car

Jeremy Blackburn

These figures reveal that the UK construction industry is currently dependent on thousands of EU workers [around 176,500]. It is in all our interests that we make a success of Brexit, but a loss of access to the single market has the potential to slowly bring the UK's £500bn infrastructure pipeline to a standstill. That means that unless access to the single market is secured or alternative plans are put in place, we won't be able to create the infrastructure needed to enable our cities to compete on a global

Nicola Sturgeon

I am not turning my back on further discussions. If the UK leaves the EU without Scotland indicating beforehand – or at least within a short time after it – that we want a different relationship with Europe, we could face a lengthy period outside not just the EU but also the single market. That could make the task of negotiating a different future much more

Donald Tusk - European Council

On Brexit all 27 [EU countries] agreed that there will be no negotiations of any kind until the UK formally notifies its intention to withdraw from the EU… Access to the single market means acceptance of all four freedoms. No single market à la

Theresa May

There is much that binds us and I don't want to see anybody doing constitutional gameplaying with the future of the UK. The most important single market for Scotland is the single market of the United

Ellie Mae O'Hagan

In my heart, I long for Wales to leave the UK. While the economics doesn’t add up, we urgently need to follow Scotland in discussing our future as a nation. Nicola Sturgeon’s announcement on Monday that she plans to hold a second referendum on Scottish independence was inevitable after Theresa May refused to discuss full Scottish access to the single market and threatened to restrict new powers for Scotland after Brexit. Downing Street, having decided the British people have had quite enough democracy for the time being, countered that “another referendum would be divisive and cause huge economic uncertainty at the worst possible time”.feedback

Fiona Hyslop

They've put us in this position – it's not where we want to be. I would be absolutely negligent in my duty as a government minister were I not to pursue the interests of the Scottish people. And the single market membership is absolutely crucial, for jobs, for services, for people. If we're meant to be treated with respect, with equal partnership, then we've seen very little respect, very little partnership. If it's a partnership of equals it doesn't feel like that from

Nicola Sturgeon

Brexit has made change inevitable… the choice I believe Scotland should have should be what kind of change we want. U.K. membership of the single market was ruled out with no prior consultation with the Scottish government, or indeed with other devolved administrations – leaving us facing not just Brexit, but a hard

Nicola Sturgeon

I can confirm today next week I will seek authority of scottish [sic] parl -legislate for an independence referendum. The future of the UK looks very different today than it did two years ago. Scots should be able to choose whether to follow the UK to a hard Brexit, or to become an independent country able to secure a real partnership of equals with the rest of the UK and our own relationship with Europe. Membership of the single market was ruled out with no prior consultation with the rest of the UK. We face a future outside the world's biggest single

Nicola Sturgeon

If Scotland is to have a real choice - when the terms of Brexit are known but before it is too late to choose our own course - then that choice must be offered between the autumn of next year, 2018, and the spring of 2019. If the UK leaves the EU without Scotland indicating beforehand - or at least within a short time after it - that we want a different relationship with Europe, we could face a lengthy period not just outside the EU but also the single market. Yes I do. Absolutely, I believe that. LABOUR PARTY WON'T OPPOSE CALL FOR REFERENDUM IF SCOTTISH PARLIAMENT WANTS

Mario Draghi - European Central Bank

Somewhere around the middle to the third quarter of this year we will decide where to build the electric mini and we have said all along that we would like to see the UK have tariff-free access to the single market. It is not the only consideration but it is a

Theresa May

We must avoid any unintended consequences for the coherence and integrity of a devolved United Kingdom as a result of our leaving the EU. Ours is not a marriage of convenience, or a fair-weather friendship, but a true and enduring union, tested in adversity and found to be true. The essential common standards which underpin the operation of a single market were provided at the European

Carsten Brzeski - ING-DiBa

Stripping the EU to the basics of the Single Market could, according to the European Commission, mean that decision-making might be simpler to understand 'but the capacity to act collectively is limited'. Consequently, the EU could also become a network of bilateral agreements and deals, which might 'widen the gap between expectations and delivery at all levels.' If the EU would be stripped to the basics of the Single Market, the entire euro zone could also be at

Nicola Sturgeon

If the prime minister thinks she can come to Scotland and sermonise about where power should lie, in the manner of one of her Tory predecessors, she should remember this: her government has no mandate in Scotland, and no democratic basis to take us out of Europe and the single market against our

Theresa May

We've been very clear we are not going to take powers from the Scottish parliament. What we do need to look at is are these powers which currently reside in Brussels, how should we deal with those? There will be some areas where we do need to ensure there is a UK framework to make sure that this very important single market of the United Kingdom, which matters so much to Scotland, is working properly. But what we are talking to all of the devolved administrations about is when we bring powers back from Brussels, what should stay at a UK level and what should be further devolved?feedback

Jacques Aschenbroich - Valeo

In Europe and in China we will go to electrification. We don't know yet at what speed. The U.S. is not a single market. If you take a look at California or the Eastern states of the U.S. they are very much focused on reducing CO2 emissions and have special regulations. So we might see two different markets. Some of them being very much orientated towards the antipollution or the reduction of pollution and maybe the rest being much more open to traditional

George Osborne

Len McCluskey - Unite

It does seem as if Brexit is a factor in GM's thinking as its UK business relies heavily on its links throughout the EU supply chain. Without a shadow of doubt, UK car plants must be offered the same assurances as those given by the government to Nissan. But, as I stressed to the minister, we need the government to be clearly committed to securing access to the single market for the UK auto

Mario Draghi - European Central Bank

The last thing we need at this point in time is the relaxation of regulation. The idea of repeating the conditions that were in place before the crisis is something that is very worrisome. First and foremost: we are not currency manipulators. Second, our monetary policies reflect the diverse state of the (economic) cycle of the euro zone and the United States. The single market would not survive with continuous competitive devaluations. Our monetary policy strategy prescribes that we should not react to individual data points and short-lived increases in

Mario Draghi - European Central Bank

It's too early to take a firm stance on the regulatory framework that should be established once the UK leaves the EU. What is important is that we don't step back on the single market. And to be part of the single market, you have to be subject to the European Court of Justice. We'll have to look carefully at

Theresa May

This agreement should allow for the freest possible trade in goods and services between Britain and the EU's member states. It should give British companies the maximum possible freedom to trade with and operate within European markets and let European businesses do the same in Britain. But I want to be clear: what I am proposing cannot mean membership of the single

Theresa May

We are glad this attempt ... has been dismissed. As the prime minister has said, we will not be a member of the single market and we will be seeking a broad new partnership with the EU including a bold and ambitious free trade

Mateusz Morawiecki

I think that both sides [UK and EU] will come to an agreement on such a participation of Britain in the single market that it will not be of course full participation, but far reaching participation. For example like

Mateusz Morawiecki

We are not moving in a binary system, but in a system where the dial is on a scale. We believe that ... while Britain will not be part of the single market, there will be no customs and we will try not to impose quotas on each other and in exchange Britain will participate in some way in the EU

Alexandra Jones

Securing the best possible EU trade deal will be critical for the prosperity of cities across Britain, and should be the Government's top priority as we prepare to leave the single market and potentially the customs union. While it's right to be ambitious about increasing exports to countries such as the U.S. and China, the outcome of EU trade negotiations will have a much bigger impact on places and people up and down the

Mike Cherry

One in three FSB members trade overseas. Small business exports have been on the rise since the referendum with the lower value of the pound making UK goods and services more competitive. As the UK leaves the Single Market any new agreement must maintain the current ease of trade with the EU and not lead to additional administrative or financial burdens. For a truly global Britain, we need the Government to enhance specific support for small exporters to reach new customers and to negotiate ambitious UK-specific trade deals with large and emerging

David Davis

This will be the most straightforward Bill possible to give effect to the decision of the people and respect the Supreme Court's judgment. So there can be no going back.

In our current baseline scenario we have indeed assumed that the UK should be able to secure an agreement that preserves many advantages of the UK's current Single Market access. We will see how likely such an agreement will be, once negotiations get under way with the EU in

Peter Ng - Silicon Valley Bank

The key takeover was that any deal will need parliamentary approval which means it could get watered down, lessening the blow from a nasty divorce. May said that she will try to get the best deal possible for the UK but is prepared to walk away from the single market if she doesn't get what she

Carolyn Fairbairn - Confederation of British Industry

Neil Wilson - ETX Capital

Theresa May's greatest trick appears to have been to deliver what amounts to a fairly hard Brexit message without the markets going into a flat spin.

Mike Hawes

The recognition by the Prime Minister of the importance of single market arrangements for the automotive sector is critical. We need government to deliver a deal which includes participation in the customs union to help safeguard EU trade, trade that is tariff-free and avoids the non-tariff and regulatory barriers that would jeopardise investment, growth and consumer choice. Achieving this will not be easy and we must, at all costs, avoid a cliff-edge and reversion to WTO tariffs, which would threaten the viability of the

Tim Bale

I think ruling out membership of the single market ... is in some ways the clarity people are looking for. Yet were she to do that, it would be a massive blow to many sectors of the economy. But if that's really what she's going to do, and it's not simply a negotiating stance on her part, it might be better to do it sooner rather than

Neil Wilson - ETX Capital

It's looking more and more like a 'hard' Brexit is in the offing and markets are responding. We now have to assume May will prioritize immigration controls and the price to pay will be to exit the single market. That could send the pound a lot lower still, perhaps towards $1.10 in the coming

Dafydd Davies

Having access to the single market is key for (the banks), or indeed if they can't have access, then what the particular requirements of the passporting might be for them to be able to still do business across Europe.

Kallum Pickering - Joh. Berenberg, Gossler & Co.

May and her cabinet had pursued Brexit under the assumption that the prime minister had the authority to trigger 'Article 50' under royal prerogative. Without such power it is unlikely that the government would be in a position to fully pursue a hard Brexit – one where the U.K. placed strong restrictions on flows of migrants from the EU and did not keep a high level of access to the EU single

Now that we've got ourselves pricing in a pretty hard-looking Brexit into market sentiment ... we're going to be sensitive to anything that challenges that view that we're putting control of immigration above protecting access to the Single Market, bank passporting etc. We needed a catalyst - we got one, but the catalyst doesn't look like a game

If you don't have full access to the single market then there are things you just cannot do from London under EU rules, which would remain in the other EU 27

Shilen Shah - Investec Wealth & Investment

For market participants the key soundbite was that regaining control over EU immigration into the UK would be the priority ahead of membership of the single market. Sterling has the potential to come under further pressure given the probable stalling of foreign direct

Simon Tilford

If the UK wants controls on labour movement from the EU it will have to concede membership of the EU's single market for services. I think that's

Wolfgang Schäuble

We just looked at each other because we're used to respecting foreign ministers a lot. If we need to do more, we will gladly send her majesty's foreign minister a copy of the Lisbon Treaty. Then he can read that there is a certain link between the single market and the four core principles in

Andrew Tyrie

These figures give us an initial idea of the effects of losing full access to the single market in financial services. The business put at risk could be

Jens Weidmann - Deutsche Bundesbank

Passporting rights are tied to the single market and would automatically cease to apply if Great Britain is no longer at least part of the European Economic

Donald Tusk - European Council

Bratislava should therefore also provide a road map for other equally important endeavors (such as economic and social development, jobs and opportunities for the young, the single market, the digital agenda and investments).feedback

John Nelson

If we do not get access to the EU single market, what will happen is that business will be written by us and others onshore in the EU. If we do not see a clear direction of travel, we will have to invoke our contingency

Jeremy Stretch - CIBC World Markets

While we have seen Sterling rebound we would the bounce as largely just short covering and likely to be temporary. Indeed we would argue that the data may embolden those within government looking for a hard Brexit, in the process ignoring single market access - harming medium run growth

David Davies

With respect to access to the single market, what we will seek to do is ideally have a tariff-free access, but this is a matter of

Robert Wood - Bank of America

Any short-term growth slowdown matters but the economics of Brexit are mostly about the long term. Leaving the EU single market is, in our view, likely to make the U.K. less open to trade and therefore damage economic performance in the long

David Cameron

There will continue to be free trade, and access to the single

Marni Walden

We didn't get into the media company business just to be a single-digit market share player. We have much bigger aspirations of how we want to grow that business. Some can happen because of the scale Verizon brings, but we will continue to look at how we can scale and be a meaningful player from a double-digit market share, and by market share, I think about revenue. We definitely will look to build this

Philip Hammond

We will come out of the single market as a result of our decision to leave the EU. The question is how we negotiate with the EU not from the point of view of being members of it but from the point of view of being close neighbours and trade partners. No, that's a decision that we haven't made

David Davis

We should work out what we do in the improbable event of the EU taking a dog in the manger attitude to single market tariff free access, and insist on WTO rules and levies, including 10 percent levies on car

Nikki Johnstone - Paul Hastings

From what I can tell, there's great will within the financial services community to have access to the single market, and there's a reason for renewed interest in the third country regime and how the U.K. will interact (with the EU).feedback

Alastair Newton

My base case remains that the U.K. will ultimately negotiate continued access to the single market Norway-style despite significant hurdles to overcome both among the 27 (EU nations) and at home. I think that ultimately the offer of a Norway-type relationship will be on the table, i.e. including free movement of labor, and will be reluctantly accepted by the Westminster

Michael Rake

It's critical we have government engage in proper negotiations with the EU because what we need to see is continued access to the single market. One of the pressing tasks awaiting the government was to renegotiate trade treaties, which it had not done on its own in more than 40

Michael Rake

It's therefore essential that we have access to single market in order to roll out this super fast

Francois Hollande

If they don't want free movement, they won't have access to the single market. The City of London would no longer be able to act as a clearing house in

Derek Halpenny - The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ

Why today? Perhaps it's a sense of some of this backtracking that's taking place from the 'Leave' side in terms of immigration in particular, which might be an indication that they're looking to get a still quite favourable deal in regard to access to the single

Sadiq Khan

The speed of our exit from the EU looks likely to be decided in Brussels, Paris and Berlin rather than in London. Britain must remain part of the European single market. Remaining in the single market needs to be priority one, two and three of our negotiation with the EU. On behalf of all Londoners, I am demanding more autonomy for the capital - right

Angela Merkel

That applies to Great Britain as well as everyone else. Norway was not an EU member but had free access to the single market "because in return it accepts free migration from the European Union among other

Francois Villeroy de Galhau

If tomorrow Britain is not part of the single market, the City cannot keep this European passport, and clearing houses cannot be located in London

Nicola Sturgeon

I want to make it absolutely clear today that I intend to take all possible steps and explore all options to give effect to how people in Scotland voted. In other words, to secure our continuing place in the EU and in the single market in particular (...) There are many people who voted against independence in 2014 who are today reassessing their decision. Indeed, a very large number of them have contacted me

Mark Boleat

The general view of the City is that the government should push for the UK to retain our access to the single

Christine Lagarde - International Monetary Fund

There has been a huge focus on the downside and not much on the benefits and upside. There have been significant benefits (for the U.K.) arising from being part of a single

Angela Merkel

If we don't say that full access to the single market is linked to full acceptance of freedom of movement, then everyone in Europe will start doing what they

David Cameron

And here's what really happens if we leave, of course we'd still want to sell into that single market, so we'd still have to meet all the rules and the regulations that Brussels lays down but we won't be at the table, we'll be like a country with our ear and our face pressed up against the glass trying to find out what's happening with the other 27 countries making rules that affect our

Michael O'Leary - Ryanair

Let me put it simply, if Britain isn't a member of the EU these investments, these jobs will be going to other countries. That's why Ryanair is campaigning so strongly for Britain to remain in the EU. If Britain leaves the single market Britain may be forced out of the Open Skies regime and airfares and the cost of holidays will rise. That's not speculation, that's a

Martin Schulz - European Parliament

It's a G7 country. A permanent member of the U.N. security council with veto power. It's the second biggest economy in the EU single market. We need

Martin Schulz - European Parliament

Yes. Britain for its part must understand it's a G7 country because it's Europe's second economy, and it's the second economy because it's fully part of this single market. So breaking up from that means reducing Britain's significance, its influence and its economic

Pier Carlo Padoan

It is not if it is complemented by structural reforms, which we are doing in the country to raise growth potential, and also a link between the eurozone and the single market. In other words, I would favour more integration not just in the eurozone, but also in Europe in a wider

Stephen Crabb

I'm not saying the increase in unemployment today is a direct result of that but it is an example of the kind of real gritty questions that those people who say Britain should leave the single market, they need to respond to

Ed Brady

Confidence levels are hovering above the 50-point mid-range, indicating that the single-family market continues to make slow but steady progress. However, builders continue to report problems regarding a shortage of lots and

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

Today's agreement guarantees the mutual respect between all our member states whether they have the euro or not. One of our greatest achievements – the single market that services half a billion people – remains

Daniel Vernazza - UniCredit Group

Brexit could generate a UK balance of payments crisis. It's an illusion to think that the UK can retain access to the single market and have more

Guntram Wolff - Bruegel

Well I think as always in these things it depends. It depends on what kind of arrangement is being found afterwards but one thing is for sure if there is a 'No' vote on the referendum on the day we will see significant market movements and we will see a very lengthy and painful process of renegotiation of the access to the single market but also of all other trade agreements with the rest of the world which the UK would have to

Andrus Ansip

We don't have different rules for ourselves and then for foreigners. And once again we have to ask of ourselves why our start ups, why for example Spotify, which was created in Sweden had to move out from the Union to the United States to scale up? We had to create digital single market in the European Union to keep our smart brains here in

David Cameron

I think we should be focusing on the positive opportunity for Britain. Imagine the scale of the prize if we can remain a member of the single market five hundred million consumers, a quarter of the global economy with a seat at the table and a say over the

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

The single market is beginning to suffer consequences that are not being managed – because they are not manageable – of the re-introduction of

Stephen Kinnock

If you come out of the European Union, you then have to start trying to agree what the trading relationship looks like. Are we in the Single Market, are we not? If we're not, what kind of tariffs do we have to pay? What sort of tariffs do we have to pay on steel? What sort of tariffs do we have to pay for example on every car that we export, which is a major part of what the Port Talbot steel works produces. Most of their customers are in the automotive industry. You've got a situation where in my opinion it would be the killer

Paul James Cardwell

The UK would not be obliged to have these regulations, unless of course there is an agreement with the EU for access to the single market, such as Norway does, in which European law is applied but the UK would have no role in making

Michael Leigh

German chancellor Angela Merkel and French president François Hollande share some of Cameron's reform goals on immigration, the single market, and labor law but will not pay any price to keep Britain inside the

Mikhail Prokhorov

The citizen must be a foundation of all State policies. And these policies shouldn't serve the interests of the State, but the State should serve the citizen. Secondly – I believe we must create a single market with Europe. Russia without Europe – and vice versa – can't compete in a new globalised world. It's absolutely impossible. And finally, I strongly believe that only a true manager with extensive experience in running large systems can lead our country into the new competent

Sergio Cantone - Euronews

The death sentence handed to Opel Antwerp is symbolic of the crisis of the industry in Europe. And the EU is finding it difficult to keep member states in line over the single market and state aid rules. Here Opel workers are asking why is their factory to go when others stay

Carl Bildt

There is no fast track for Iceland but there is obviously a rather shorter track for Iceland because they are already part of the single market and the Schengen

Gordon Brown

Today was the first council meeting under the UK presidency. The meeting considered, in particular, key elements of economic reform, building of the reform of the stability pact, completing the single market through our commitment to long term structural reform founded on greater flexibity. The council considered the need to set time-tables for further market liberalisation, a more independent competition policy and the reform of state

Vince Cable - Stansted Airport

Both sides of the coalition accept, absolutely fundamentally, that our future lies in our very close relationship with Europe. We're members of the Single Market, it's going to stay that way, hundreds of thousands of British jobs, in all sectors of the economy, all parts of the country, depend on the Single

Michel Barnier

Of course, not everything is equal in the single market, but the path we have laid down is to harmonise to come together more, to have standards, common rules, and not to prevent competition, competition is part of life, what I am working for is competition which is fair and equitable. The single market is the main opportunity for

Mario Monti

It is not going to be that relevant because the European market will continue substantially to be developed by the 27 member states. Of course, if the United Kingdom had been at the heart of the euro zone, with France, Germany and Italy, or at least, even without the euro, if the UK hadn't contemptuously excluded itself it would have been a United Kingdom that counts for more, with more influence. And given that the UK has competition and the single market in its own DNA, staying in would have been a stronger move with benefits for all 27

Mario Monti

It won't be so relevant, because the European market will continue substantially to be developed by the 27 (member states). Of course, if the United Kingdom had been at the heart of the eurozone, with France, Germany and Italy… or at least, even without the euro, if Britain hadn't contemptuously excluded itself… it would have been a UK that counts for more, with more influence. And given that Great Britain has competition and the single market in its own DNA, this (staying in) would have been a stronger move with benefits for all 27

Jacques Delors

And then I see a great Europe, open, basically founded on the single market, the four freedoms of circulation – people, services, goods and capital – but also with a world view – of development aid and neighbourhood policies, and everything that is done for victims of tragedies – and I see this great Europe as a model that could inspire a reform of the United

Neelie Kroes

EU online markets are still separated by barriers which hamper access to pan-European telecoms services, digital services and content. There is a digital single market, yes, but it is an illegal one [when we are] talking about music. Today, there are four times as many [legal] music downloads in the US as in the

Guenther Oettinger - European Union

Basically we welcome any investor from outside or within the European Union who invests in infrastructure in order to assure energy security for the citizens of Europe. But in the territory of the European Union they have to fully respect our single market and competition

Kamall Syed

It's important that Barnier proves that he is not Sarkozy's puppet or Sarkozy's man, that he will be an independent commissioner. We don't have to agree on everything, we don't have even to agree on the European Union. But he has to make sure that he is truly a commissioner for a single market, and he will promote single market, even over national

Mario Monti

I think that (a referendum) is very healthy because it would finally, for the first time, ask the British people to reflect – not only on the huge benefit for them psychologically to make things difficult for us on the continent (laughs from the audience) – but on what the costs would be for them of saying goodbye to the single

David Cameron

We had very good discussions between very good friends. There are many things upon which we are in absolute agreement: on the importance of the single market, on the need for budget discipline, on the need for all countries to deal with their debts and

Joaquin Almunia

Let's be clear. We have to be realistic it's no time for utopia. Each country allotting public or private resources is the most realistic proposal. If it's co-ordinated it will increase the confidence among financial institutions that operate in a single market like the inter-banking
