1. SOUNDBITE (English) Theresa May, British Prime Minister:
"When people voted in the referendum on the 23rd of June, yes they voted to leave the European Union (EU) but they also voted for change. And this year, 2017, is the year that we start to make that happen and that's why over the coming weeks I'll be setting out more details of my plan for Britain and yes that's about getting the right deal for Brexit but it's also about economic reform. We'll be publishing a housing white paper, a green paper on our industrial strategy. It's also about social reform. I'm going to focus on some of the injustices, particularly mental health and the stigma that still attaches to mental health. So it's about getting the right deal internationally, it's also about a fair deal at home."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) Theresa May, British Prime Minister:
"This is where it's important for us to look at this issue in the right way. Because I think often people talk in terms as if somehow we're leaving the EU but we still want to keep bits of membership of the EU. We're leaving, we're coming out, we're not going to be a member of the EU any longer. (Reporter: A member of the single market?) So the question is: what is the right relationship for the UK to have with the European Union when we're outside? We will be able to have control of our borders, control of our laws. This is what people were voting for on the 23 June. But of course we still want the best possible deal for UK companies to be able to trade in and operate within the European Union and also European companies to be able to trade within the UK and operate within the UK."
5. SOUNDBITE (English) Theresa May, British Prime Minister:
"What we're saying is: what is the right deal for the UK? Not a model that someone has, but what's going to work for the UK? And I think that the best possible deal for the UK will also be a good deal for the EU. We're leaving the EU, we're not leaving Europe. We want to continue to have those good relationships with members of the European Union."
7. SOUNDBITE (English) Theresa May, British Prime Minister:
"But what I'm saying is that I think it's wrong to look at this as just a binary issue- that either you have control of immigration or you have a good trade deal. I don't see it as a binary issue. We will outside the European Union be able to have control of immigration and be able to set our rules for people coming to the UK from member states of the European Union but we also as part of that Brexit deal will be working to get the best possible deal in the trading relationship with the European Union."
9. SOUNDBITE (English) Theresa May, British Prime Minister:
"I'm ambitious for what we can get for the UK in terms of our relationship with the European Union because I also think that's going to be good for the European Union. So our thinking isn't muddled at all. Yes we've been taking time I said we wouldn't trigger article 50 immediately. Some people said we should, (UK opposition leader) Jeremy Corbyn said we should. But actually there hadn't been any plans made for Brexit so it was important to take some time and look at the issues, look at the complexity of the issues. And that's why as I say, we didn't trigger immediately but we will trigger at the end of March this year."
