  5. Controlling immigration; 6 The United Kingdom’s exit from and new partnership with the European Union
  6. Securing rights for EU nationals in the UK and UK nationals in the EU;
  7. Protecting workers’ rights;
  8. Ensuring free trade with European markets;
  9. Securing new trade agreements with other countries;
  10. Ensuring the United Kingdom remains the best place for science and innovation;
  11. Cooperating in the fight against crime and terrorism; and
  12. Delivering a smooth, orderly exit from the EU.
