  • Any agreement must be based on a balance of rights and obligations, and ensure a level-playing field
  • The Single Market can't be broken down into individual industries or sectors
  • A non-member of the EU can't have the same rights and benefits as a member
  • Individual EU states will not negotiate separately with the UK
