LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday her government was already negotiating with the European Union on future ties, based on a white paper policy document published last week.

“The Chequers agreement, the white paper are the basis for our negotiation with the European Union and we have already started those negotiations,” she told parliament, adding that she had not abandoned her plan for the facilitated customs arrangement with the EU.
