UK Parliament May Get Vote on Single Market Access

Lawmakers may get a vote on whether Britain should stay in the European Union’s single market after Brexit, Prime Minister Theresa May’s government signaled, fueling calls for Britain to replicate Norway’s trade deal with the European Union.

Brexit Secretary David Davis said it is “quite likely” that Parliament will be asked to vote on whether Britain should leave the European Economic Area, which gives non-EU countries Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland rights to trade in the single market.

May is planning to take Britain out of the single market but some pro-Europeans see EEA membership as a route to a softer Brexit in which the country would retain free trade with the bloc.
