PARIS (Reuters) - Britain will not pursue “a race to the bottom” after it leaves the European Union, its Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt said in Paris on Thursday, seeking to allay European concerns that Britain might seek to diverge sharply from European regulations.

“We have offered a framework for our future relationship which should give you confidence that we are not going to pursue a race to the bottom,” Hunt said, speaking in French.
