UK government 'agrees not to favour EU workers after Brexit'

"That would mean a better deal on migration, but the same offer would be available if we struck trade deals with other countries around the world", the newspaper quoted a source as saying.

Prime Minister Theresa May signalled on Tuesday that she would prefer a "no-deal" Brexit to the offer now put forward by the European Union, stressing that Britain needs to see counter-proposals from the EU to move Brexit negotiations forward.
