1. SOUNDBITE: (English) Theresa May, UK Prime Minister:
"I'm conscious that our departure causes another type of uncertainty for the remaining member states and their tax payers over the EU budget. Some of the claims made on this issue are exaggerated and unhelpful and we can only resolve this as part of the settlement of all the issues I have been talking about today. Still I do not want our partners to fear that they will need to pay more or receive less over the remainder of the current budget plan as a result of our decision to leave. The UK will honor commitments we have made during the period of our membership." and as we move forwards we would also want to continue working together in ways that promote the long term economic development of our continent.
2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Theresa May, UK Prime Minister:
"And as we move forwards we would also want to continue working together in ways that promote the long term economic development of our continent. This includes continuing to take part in those specific policies and programmes which are greatly to the UK and the EU's joint advantage such as those that promote science, education and culture, and those that promote our mutual security. And as I set out in my speech at Lancaster House, in doing so we would want to make an ongoing contribution to cover our fair share of the costs involved."
3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Theresa May, UK Prime Minister:
"When we differ from the EU in our regulatory choices it won't be to try and attain an unfair competitive advantage. It will be because we want rules that are right for Britain's particular situation. The best way for us both to succeed is to fulfill the potential of the partnership I have set out today. For we should be in no doubt that if our collective endeavours in these negotiations were to prove insufficient to reach an agreement, it would be a failure in the eyes of history and a damaging blow to the future of our continent. Indeed I believe the difference between where we would all be if we fail and where we could be if we can achieve the kind of new partnership I've set out today, to be so great that it is beholden on all of us involved to demonstrate the leadership and flexibility needed to ensure that we succeed."
