European Union wants to restrict single market access to UK



The European Union wants to be able to restrict the UK's access to the single market if there is a dispute after Brexit, a leaked document suggests.

 
The power to suspend "certain benefits" would apply during the post-Brexit transition phase before the final arrangements come into force.


It is revealed in a draft section of the UK and EU's withdrawal agreement, which has yet to be finalised.


The UK said the document simply reflected the EU's "stated directives".
