Theresa May quotes

An act of terrorism tried to silence our democracy. He took out his rage indiscriminately against innocent men, women and children.

The police heroically did their job. But, as is routine, the police, together with the House authorities, are reviewing the security of the parliamentary estate, coordinated with the Cabinet Office, which has responsibility for the security measures in place around the government secure zone.

An act of terrorism tried to silence our democracy. He took out his rage indiscriminately.

His identity is known to the police and MI5 and, when operational considerations allow, he will be publicly identified. What I can confirm is that the man was British-born and that – some years ago – he was once investigated in relation to concerns about violent extremism. He was a peripheral figure. The case is historic – he was not part of the current intelligence picture. There was no prior intelligence of his intent or of the plot. Intensive investigations continue.

The case is historical – he was not part of the current intelligence picture. There was no prior intelligence of his intent – or of the plot.

We are not afraid. Today we meet as normal – as generations have done before us, and as future generations will continue to do.

As I speak, millions will be boarding trains and airplanes to travel to London, and to see for themselves the greatest city on Earth. It is in these actions - millions of acts of normality - that we find the best response to terrorism. A response that denies our enemies their victory, that refuses to let them win, that shows we will never give in.

An attacker attempted to break into Parliament and was shot dead within 20 yards of the gate. If his intention was to gain access to this building we should be clear that he did not succeed. The police heroically did their job.

Londoners, and others from around the world who have come here to visit this great city, will get up and go about their day as normal.

In addition to twelve Britons admitted to hospital, we know that the victims include three French children, two Romanians, four South Koreans, one German, one Pole, one Irish, one Chinese, one Italian, one American and two Greeks.

Beyond these walls today – in scenes repeated in towns and cities across the country – millions of people are going about their days and getting on with their lives. The streets are as busy as ever, the offices full, the coffee shops and cafés bustling. As I speak, millions will be boarding trains and aeroplanes to travel to London and to see from themselves the greatest city on earth. It is in these actions, millions of acts of normality, that we find the best response to terrorism.

It is still believed that this attacker acted alone and the police have no reason to believe that are imminent further attacks on the public. He was a peripheral figure. The case is historic. He was not part of the current intelligence picture. There was no prior intelligence of his intent or of the plot.

We are not afraid. Yesterday an act of terrorism tried to silence our democracy, but today we meet as normal.

We are not afraid, our resolve will not waiver. We are not afraid and our resolve will never waver in the face of terrorism.

It is Islamist terrorism. It is a perversion of a great faith.

We will all move forward together, never giving in to terror and never allowing the voices of hate and evil to drive us apart.

As I speak millions will be boarding trains and airplanes to travel to London, and to see for themselves the greatest city on Earth. It is in these actions - millions of acts of normality - that we find the best response to terrorism –a response that denies our enemies their victory, that refuses to let them win, that shows we will never give in.

The terrorist chose to strike at the heart of our capital city, where people of all nationalities, religions and cultures come together to celebrate the values of liberty, democracy and freedom of speech. But let me make it clear today, as I have had cause to do before, any attempt to defeat those values through violence and terror is doomed to failure.

The location of this attack was no accident. The terrorists chose to strike at the heart of our capital city, where people of all nationalities, religions and cultures come together to celebrate the values of liberty, democracy and freedom of speech.

Let me make it clear today, as I have had cause to do before, any attempt to defeat our values through violence and terror is doomed to failure.

Our working assumption is that the attacker was inspired by Islamist ideology.

The man was British-born and some years ago was once investigated by MI5 in relation to concerns of violent extremism. He was a peripheral figure. His case was historic. He was not part of the current intelligence picture.

In addition to 12 Britons admitted to hospital, we know the victims include three French children, two Romanians, four South Koreans, one German, one Pole, one Irish, one Chinese, one Italian, one American and two Greeks.

Let this be the message from this house and this nation today: our values will prevail.

Tomorrow morning parliament will meet as normal. We will come together as normal, and Londoners and others from around the world who have come here to visit this great city will get up and go about their day as normal. They will board their trains, they will leave their hotels, they will walk these streets. They will live their lives and we will all move forward together, never giving in to terror and never allowing the voices of hate and evil to drive us apart.

The location of this attack was no accident. The terrorist chose to strike at the heart of our capital city, where people of all nationalities, religions and cultures come together to celebrate the values of liberty, democracy and freedom of speech. These streets of Westminster, home to the world's oldest parliament, are ingrained with a spirit of freedom that echoes in some of the furthest corners of the globe.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all who have been affected, to the victims themselves and their family and friends – who waved their loved ones off but will not now be welcoming them home. For those of us who were in Parliament at the time of this attack, these events provide a particular reminder of the exceptional bravery of our police and security services who risk their lives to keep us safe. Once again today, these exceptional men and women ran toward the danger even as they encouraged others to move the other way.

That is why it is a target for those who reject those values. But let me make it clear today, as I have had cause to do before: Any attempt to defeat those values through violence and terror is doomed to failure.

Tomorrow morning, parliament will meet as normal. We will come together as normal. And Londoners and [other visitors] will get up and go about their day as normal.

McGuinness "understood both its fragility and its precious significance and played a vital part in helping to find a way through many difficult moments.

We don't comment on private conversations that take place. All I would say is, I've been very clear: I'm not afraid to raise issues. And the nature of the relationship is such that we should be able to be frank and open with each other.

I think he [Trump] was actually being a gentleman. We were about to walk down a ramp, and he said it [the step down the ramp] might be a bit awkward.

First and foremost, my thoughts are with the family of Martin McGuinness at this sad time. While I can never condone the path he took in the earlier part of his life, Martin McGuinness ultimately played a defining role in leading the Republican movement away from violence. In doing so, he made an essential and historic contribution to the extraordinary journey of Northern Ireland from conflict to peace.

While we certainly didn't always see eye-to-eye even in later years, as deputy First Minister for nearly a decade he was one of the pioneers of implementing cross community power sharing in Northern Ireland. He understood both its fragility and its precious significance and played a vital part in helping to find a way through many difficult moments. At the heart of it all was his profound optimism for the future of Northern Ireland – and I believe we should all hold fast to that optimism today.

I have set out my objectives. Those include getting a good free trade deal, they include putting issues like continuing working together on issues like security at the core of what we are doing. We are going to out there negotiating hard, delivering on what the British people voted for.

People have described it as a lucky suit. I think I'm going to stop wearing it now. I think I'd want to make sure everyone in the world had access to clean water and sufficient food, so we didn't see people starving.

And I also think it's important to be able to show that a woman can do a job like this and still be interested in clothes.

This bill is the biggest power grab since the days of Henry VIII. The Liberal Democrats will not sit there and let the government say all the right things while eroding vital rights and protections that makes Britain what it is. We will, if needed, grind the government's agenda to a standstill, unless proper and rigorous safeguards are given over the Great Repeal Bill. The ball is now in the Prime Minister's court.

To build a stronger economy that works for everyone, Government must also support competitive markets and an open economy. That means recognising where markets are not working for customers, and being ready to step in on their behalf, so that consumers get a fair deal. One market that is manifestly not working for all consumers is the energy market. Energy is not a luxury, it is a necessity of life. But it is clear to me – and to anyone who looks at it – that the market is not working as it should.

So we are looking very closely at how we can address this problem, and ensure a fairer deal for everyone.

Our party did not end the unjust and inefficient monopolies of the old nationalized energy corporations only to replace them with a system that traps the poorest customers on the worst deals.

And now they apparently say that an independent Scotland would no longer seek to become a member of the EU after a vote for separation.

We have seen that tunnel vision on display again this week. The SNP argue that we should break up the UK because we are leaving the EU. It is muddle on muddle. One market that is manifestly not working for all consumers is the energy market. The vast majority of consumers, especially those with the lowest incomes, are on the most expensive tariffs. Relying on switching alone to keep prices down is clearly not working.

I will always fight to strengthen and sustain this precious, precious Union. Now is not the time.

As we leave the European Union, I am determined that we will seize the opportunity to forge a bold new role for a global Britain as the most outward-looking, free-trading nation in the world.

All our energies should be focused on our negotiations with the European Union.

Now is not the time. All our energies should be focused on our negotiations with the European Union.

We need to do so united, as one United Kingdom, all pulling together to get the best outcome. That is what we have always done when faced with challenges. We have pulled together as one and succeeded together.

History may look back on today and see it as the day the fate of the Union was sealed.

The Union is more than just a constitutional artefact. It is a union between all of our citizens, whoever we are and wherever we're from. So our Plan for Britain will put strengthening and sustaining that Union at its heart. The coming negotiations with the EU will be vital for everyone in the United Kingdom. It is essential that we get the right deal, and that all of our efforts and energies as a country and focused on that outcome.

This is just wishful thinking by a group of arch-Eurosceptics who have never got over the fact they cocked up the leadership contest.

They have imposed a fine on the Conservative Party and the Conservative Party will be meeting that fine, will be paying that fine. In fact there were some issues that the party itself raised with the Electoral Commission through their investigations.

To look at this issue at this time would be unfair because people wouldn't have the necessary information to make such a crucial decision.

I have absolute faith in the chancellor. We made very clear yesterday, he and I, about the tax lock, that we recognised the spirit of the manifesto and the change has been made.

Right now we should be working together, not pulling apart. We should be working together to get that right deal for Scotland, that right deal for the UK. That's my job as prime minister and so for that reason I say to the SNP (Scottish National Party) now is not the time.

We made a commitment not to raise tax and measures we put forward in the Budget last week were consistent with those [tax locks]. As a number of my Parliamentary colleagues have pointed out in recent days the trend towards greater self-employment does create a structural issue within the tax base on which we will have to act. We have to maintain fairness within the tax system.

We will bring forward further proposals but we will not bring forward increases in (national insurance) later in this Parliament. As a number of my parliamentary colleagues have been pointing out in recent days, the trend towards greater self-employment does create a structural issue in the tax base on which we will have to act. We want to ensure we maintain fairness in the tax system.

One of the driving forces behind the union's creation was the remorseless logic that greater economic strength and security come from being united. Politics is not a game, and government is not a platform from which to pursue constitutional obsessions.

This is not a moment to play politics or create uncertainty and division… It is a moment to bring our country together, to honour the will of the British people and to shape for them a brighter future and a better Britain.

I prefer not to use a term of divorce from the European Union because very often when people get divorced they don't have a very good relationship afterwards.

There is much that binds us and I don't want to see anybody doing constitutional gameplaying with the future of the UK. The most important single market for Scotland is the single market of the United Kingdom.

The tunnel vision that the SNP has shown today is deeply regrettable. It sets Scotland on a course for more uncertainty and division, creating huge uncertainty. Politics is not a game.

Next week I will seek the approval of the Scottish Parliament to agree with the UK government the details of a section 30 order - the procedure that will enable the Scottish Parliament to legislate for an independence referendum.

If Scotland is to have a real choice - when the terms of Brexit are known, but before it is too late to choose our own course - then that choice must be offered between the autumn of next year, 2018, and the spring of 2019.

The tunnel vision that the SNP has shown today is deeply regrettable. It sets Scotland on a course for more uncertainty and division, creating huge uncertainty. And this is at a time when the evidence is that the Scottish people, the majority of the Scottish people, do not want a second independence referendum. So, instead of playing politics with the future of our country, the Scottish government should focus on delivering good government and public services for the people of Scotland. Politics is not a game.

Ours is not a marriage of convenience, or a fair-weather friendship, but a true and enduring Union, tested in adversity and found to be true... We are four nations, but at heart we are one people. That solidarity is the essence of our United Kingdom and is the surest safeguard of its future. The devolution of powers across the United Kingdom must not mean we become a looser and weaker Union. We cannot allow our United Kingdom to drift apart. For too long the attitude in Whitehall has been to 'devolve and forget.

What they can say is the parliament will have a say at the end of the negotiations. David Davis and everybody else knows that parliament will find a way to have a vote – isn't it better that the government acknowledges that today, recognises that MPs will have a say at the end of this. But if the prime minister wants a united party behind her, then this is a simple reassurance that can be given by ministers at the despatch box that will have the effect of me and my colleagues supporting the government in this.

Over time we will extend this to the sponsorship or establishment of more than one school, so that in the future we see our universities sponsoring thriving school chains in every town and city in the country.

I'm not setting a quota for the number of schools that are suddenly going to become grammar schools.

The prime minister has made clear along that the UK is seeking the right deal for financial services as Britain leaves the EU and she made that point to the audience.

It's time to get on with leaving the European Union and building the independent, self governing, global Britain the British people have called for. And so, as I have said, we will trigger Article 50 by the end of this month. This will be a defining moment for the UK, as we begin the process of forging a new role for ourselves in the world, as a strong country with control over our borders and over our laws.

I'm interested in all these terms that have been identified. Hard Brexit, soft Brexit, black Brexit, white Brexit, grey Brexit–and actually what we should be looking for is a red, white and blue Brexit.

People will be able to look at the government paper when we produce it showing all our changes and take a judgement in the round. Of course the chancellor and his ministers will be speaking to MPs, business people and others to listen to their concerns. This is a change that leaves lower paid self-employed workers better off.

The process which is article 50 sets out is for the withdrawal but also setting the framework for a future relationship, which actually should take the two years. That is the timetable we're working to and the EU is working to. I am optimistic we can achieve a good and comprehensive trade deal with the EU.

The substance of what he is asking is, has there been a particular deal with Surrey county council that is not available to other councils. And the answer to that is no.

For too many children, a good school place remains out of reach, with their options determined by where they live or how much money their parents have. Over the last six years, we have overseen a revolution in our schools system and we have raised standards and opportunity, but there is much more to do.

We all know that the SNP will never stop twisting the truth and distorting reality in their effort to denigrate our United Kingdom and further their obsession of independence. A tunnel vision nationalism, which focuses only on independence at any cost, sells Scotland short. As I have made clear repeatedly, no decisions currently taken by the Scottish Parliament will be removed from them. I am determined to ensure that as we leave the EU, we do so as one United Kingdom, which prospers outside the EU as one United Kingdom.

Located close by the beaches where they began the liberation of Europe, the Normandy memorial will be a fitting tribute to them and a place where people can gather to reflect on their extraordinary achievements. Its unveiling on the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings in 2019 will provide a timely reminder that we should never take our freedom for granted.

India, our Commonwealth partner, is one of the world's largest spirits markets. But within the EU, Scotch whisky faces a tariff of 150 percent for selling to India. And Scotch whisky, the world's preeminent spirit has just a one percent share of the Indian market. I am determined that we should do better than that for our key industries.

The days of Britain making vast contributions to the European Union every year will end.

As we bring powers and control back to the United Kingdom, we must ensure that right powers sit at the right level to ensure our United Kingdom can operate effectively and in the interests of all of its citizens, including people in Scotland. As I have made clear repeatedly, no decisions currently taken by the Scottish parliament will be removed from them. While the SNP propose that decision-making should remain in Brussels, we will use the opportunity of Brexit to ensure that more decisions are devolved back into the hands of the Scottish people.

Our aim will be to achieve the most effective arrangements to maintain and strengthen the United Kingdom, while also respecting the devolution settlements, and we will work constructively with the devolved administrations on that basis.

We must avoid any unintended consequences for the coherence and integrity of a devolved United Kingdom as a result of our leaving the EU. Ours is not a marriage of convenience, or a fair-weather friendship, but a true and enduring union, tested in adversity and found to be true. The essential common standards which underpin the operation of a single market were provided at the European level.

The UK devolution settlements were designed in 1998 without any thought of a potential Brexit.

It took time for me to come to some sort of peace with myself about it. It's something I struggled with. I didn't want to be gay – I'm not sure how many people do….

You have to look after that cat and not let Donald Trump anywhere near your pussy.

We have got, I think, a good relationship… I know her media persona is quite reserved, but she's got quite a quiet wit about her. I think she'll be a good prime minister. She takes everything very seriously, and will always do the right thing. To serve through Brexit is going to be a bloody tough shift, and I take my hat off to her that she wanted to take it on. Labour is still fumbling with its flies while the Tories are enjoying their post-coital cigarette. After withdrawing our massive Johnson.

My first visit as Prime Minister was here to Scotland. I wanted to make clear that strengthening and sustaining the bonds that unite us is a personal priority for me. I am confident about the future of our United Kingdom and optimistic about what we can achieve together as a country. I would suggest that macho, beer-swilling, posturing at the golf-club bar isn't going to get us anywhere.

We've been very clear we are not going to take powers from the Scottish parliament. What we do need to look at is are these powers which currently reside in Brussels, how should we deal with those? There will be some areas where we do need to ensure there is a UK framework to make sure that this very important single market of the United Kingdom, which matters so much to Scotland, is working properly. But what we are talking to all of the devolved administrations about is when we bring powers back from Brussels, what should stay at a UK level and what should be further devolved?

This investment is a vote of confidence in our modern industrial strategy and our determination to cement the UK's position as a world leader in high-tech engineering. Dyson's exporting strength and commitment to creating jobs in Britain is a real success story that demonstrates the opportunity that our plan to create a truly global Britain can present.

We thought that was wrong, that was divisive, it is not a policy that the United Kingdom would adopt.

We do expect and intend that that will happen before the European Parliament debates and votes on the final agreement.

She "agreed to continue my efforts to persuade my fellow European leaders to deliver on their commitment to spend 2 percent of GDP on defense, so that the burden is more fairly shared.

Our European partners now want to get on with the negotiations. So do I, and so does this House.

We remain committed to a two-state solution as the best way of brokering stability and peace.

I want to be clear. What I am proposing cannot mean membership of the single market.

, We will not be a member of the single market and we will be seeking a broad new partnership with the EU including a bold and ambitious free trade agreement.

I do not mean that we will seek some form of unlimited transitional status, in which we find ourselves stuck forever in some kind of permanent political purgatory. That would not be good for Britain, but nor do I believe it would be good for the EU. Instead, I want us to have reached an agreement about our future partnership by the time the two-year Article 50 process has concluded.

I have issued that invitation for a state visit for President Trump to the United Kingdom and that invitation stands.

I am proud that the U.K. stood with you on the 15th of July last year in defense of your democracy. And now it is important that Turkey sustains that democracy by maintaining the rule of law and upholding its international human rights obligations – as the government has undertaken to do.

On defence and security cooperation, we are united in our recognition of NATO as the bulwark of our collective defense, and today we've reaffirmed our unshakable commitment to this alliance. Mr. President, I think you said, you confirmed that you're 100 percent behind NATO.

The days of the UK and US intervening in sovereign countries in an attempt to remake the world in our own image are over. But nor can we afford to stand idly by.

We're joined by our Washington correspondent Stefan Grobe. The prime minister has gone to the US to lay the foundations of a possible future trade deal, but she's also spoken about a new non-interventionist UK-US approach to global conflicts. Yet she's also signalled a tough line against Russia if one is needed. How has that been received by the Trump administration?

The leadership provided by our two countries through the 'special relationship' has done more than win wars and overcome adversity. It made the modern world. It is through our actions over many years, working together to defeat evil or to open up the world, that we have been able to fulfill the promise of those who first spoke of the special nature of the relationship between us. The promise of freedom, liberty and the rights of man.

When it comes to Russia, as so often it is wise to turn to the example of President Reagan who – during his negotiations with his opposite number Mikhail Gorbachev – used to abide by the adage 'trust but verify.' With President Putin, my advice is to 'engage but beware.

America's leadership role in NATO – supported by Britain – must be the central element around which the alliance is built.

It is my honour and privilege to do so at this time as dawn breaks on a new era of American renewal. As so often it is wise to turn to the example of President Reagan who during his negotiations with his opposite number Michail Gorbachev used to abide by the adage 'trust but verify'… with president Putin my advice is to 'engage, but beware.'.

Some of these organizations are in need of reform and renewal to make them relevant to our needs today. But we should be proud of the role our two nations – working in partnership – played in bringing them into being, and in bringing peace and prosperity to billions of people as a result. When it comes to Russia, as so often it is wise to turn to the example of President Reagan who – during his negotiations with his opposite number Mikhail Gorbachev – used to abide by the adage 'trust but verify.' With President Putin, my advice is to 'engage but beware,'.

As we renew the promise of our nations to make them stronger at home, in the words of President Reagan as the 'sleeping giant stirs' – so let us renew the relationship that can lead the world towards the promise of freedom and prosperity marked out in parchment by those ordinary citizens 240 years ago.

I think there is much that we can do in the interim in terms of looking at how we can remove some of the barriers to trade in a number of areas so that we are able to see an advantage for both of us even if we haven't actually been able to sign that legal free trade agreement.

We condemn torture and my view on that won't change – whether I am talking to you or talking to the president.

The UK is leaving the European Union, not Europe.

We will be looking for a UK-U.S. trade deal that improves trade between our two countries. And I can assure … that in doing that we will put UK interests and UK values first.

The Obama administration obviously signed up to the Paris climate change agreement, we have now done that, I would hope that all parties would continue to ensure that that climate change agreement is put into practice.

I set out that bold plan for a global Britain last week and I recognise there is an appetite in this house to see that plan set out in a white paper. I can confirm to the house that our plan will be set out in a white paper.

This is all about driving our economy for the future. This is important anyway, but as we leave the European Union we want to ensure that we are that truly global Britain with an economy that is in the right shape for the future.

I have absolute faith in our Trident missiles. When I made that speech in the House of Commons, what we were talking about was whether or not we should renew our Trident.

When I sit down, I think the biggest statement that will be made about the role of women is the fact that I will be there as a female prime minister, prime minister of the United Kingdom, directly taking to him about the interests that we share.

I've already said that some of the comments that Donald Trump has made in relation to women are unacceptable, some of those he himself has apologized for. When I sit down (with Trump) I think the biggest statement that will be made about the role of women is the fact that I will be there as a female prime minister ... Whenever there is something that I find unacceptable I won't be afraid to say that to Donald Trump.

Where are the successful sectors that we can help to encourage to grow? But also, what are the sectors that we need to look to for the future too?

The forces of liberalism, free trade and globalization that have had, and continue to have, such an overwhelmingly positive impact on our world ... are somehow at risk of being undermined.

We have seen different movements in the pound over the last six months. But what we have also seen through the other economic data ... is the strength of the UK economy.

We are looking specifically at the question of critical national infrastructure and at the question of national security but in this area as in other areas we will be publishing proposals in due course.

What we're doing is setting out very clearly for people what the position will be.

But it must accept that some people they do feel like they have been left behind.

It remains overwhelmingly and compellingly in Britain's national interest that the EU as an organisation should succeed.

I want the U.K. to emerge from this period of change as a truly global Britain – the best friend and neighbor to our European partners, but a country that reaches beyond the borders of Europe, too.

If we are to make the case for free markets, free trade and globalization, as we must, those of us who believe in them must face up to and respond to the concerns people have.

Mainstream political and business leaders have failed to comprehend their legitimate concerns for too long.

The good news is, in security matters which I am standing up for, we will still be with our British friends in NATO.

No deal for Britain is better than a bad deal for Britain.

I want Britain to be able to negotiate its own trade agreements but I also want tariff free trade with Europe and cross border trade there to be as frictionless as possible. But I want to be clear. What I am proposing cannot mean membership of the single market.

I know there are some voices calling for a punitive deal that punishes Britain and discourages other countries from taking the same path. That would be an act of calamitous self-harm for the countries of Europe and it would not be the act of a friend.

You will still be welcome in this country as we hope our citizens will be welcome in yours.

I want this United Kingdom to emerge from this period of change stronger, fairer, more united and more outward-looking than ever before. I want us to be a secure, prosperous, tolerant country, a magnet for international talent.

We do not seek membership of the single market. Instead, we seek the greatest possible access to it through a new, comprehensive, bold and ambitious free-trade agreement.

We seek a new and equal partnership, between an independent, self-governing, global Britain and our friends and allies in the EU.

We want to buy your goods, sell you ours, trade with you as freely as possible, and work with one another to make sure we are all safer, more secure and more prosperous through continued friendship.

I know there are some voices calling for a punitive deal that punishes Britain and discourages other countries from taking the same path. That would be an act of calamitous self-harm for the countries of Europe. And it would not be the act of a friend.

Brexit must mean control of the number of people who come to Britain from Europe – and that is what we will deliver.

When it comes to parliament, there is one other way I would like to provide certainty. I can confirm today that the government will put the final deal that is agreed between the UK and the EU to a vote in both houses of parliament before it comes into force.

We have 12 objectives that amount to one big goal: a new, positive and constructive partnership between Britain and the European Union.

It is absolutely clear that the individual who produced this dossier has not worked for the UK government for years.

I join (Corbyn) in expressing condolences to the family and friends of little Katie who died so tragically.

What I am talking about is getting the right relationship for the UK with the EU. We mustn't think about this as somehow we are coming out of membership but we want to keep bits of membership.

I think it's wrong to look at this as just a binary issue, as to either you have control of immigration, or you have a good trade deal. I don't see it a as a binary issue. We will, outside the European Union, be able to have control of immigration, and be able to set our rules for people coming to the UK from member states of the European Union. But we also, as part of that Brexit deal, will be working to get the best possible deal in the trading relationship with the European Union.

Ll set out Brexit strategy over coming weeks: British PM May. Over the coming weeks, I'll be setting out more details of my plan for Britain, yes that's about getting the right deal for Brexit, but it is also about economic reform ... It's about getting the right deal internationally but it's also about a fair deal at home.

We do not believe that it is appropriate to attack the composition of the democratically-elected government of an ally.

But as part of the negotiations, we will have to address this question of the practicalities of adjustment to the new relationship once that new relationship has been agreed.

As we are going to invoke Article 50, trigger the negotiations by the end of March next year, it's right that the other leaders prepare for those negotiations as we have been preparing. We will be leaving the EU, we want that to be a smooth and orderly process. It's not just in our interests, it's in the interests of the rest of Europe as well.

It means there will be one definition of anti-Semitism – in essence, language or behavior that displays hatred toward Jews because they are Jews – and anyone guilty of that will be called out on it.

We have been very clear that setting out the terms of our negotiation before we need to do so is the best way of getting the worst possible deal.

This access to labour is essential as it underpins the UK food chain's timely delivery of high-quality, affordable food to consumers.

I've also reiterated my plan to guarantee the rights of Poles and other Europeans currently living in the UK, so long as the rights of British citizens living across the EU are guaranteed. And I hope we can reach an early agreement on this issue, providing certainty for Polish citizens here and British people living in Europe.

We will commit to substantial real term increases in government investment in R+D, investing an extra 2 billion pounds a year by the end of this parliament, to help put post-Brexit Britain at the cutting edge of science and tech.

Now we want to go further and look at how we can make our support even more effective because my aim is not simply for the UK to have the lowest corporate tax rate in the G20 but also a tax system that is profoundly pro-innovation.

When a small minority of businesses and business figures appear to game the system and work to a different set of rules, we have to recognize that the social contract between business and society fails – and the reputation of business as a whole is undermined.

Our work is on track. I want to see this as a smooth process, as an orderly process, working towards a solution that is in the interests of both the United Kingdom, but also in the interests of our European partners too.

Our work is on track, we do stand ready to trigger Article 50 before the end of March, or by the end of March 2017.

The employment figures show the strength of the fundamentals of our economy.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of those who have been affected by this terrible incident that has taken place on the tram in Croydon.

We have a visa system for countries outside the European Union which ensures the brightest and the best are able to come to the United Kingdom. We have, I believe, a good system. We will be talking about trade here.

As the UK prepares to leave the EU, I am determined that Britain should become the global champion of free trade, and that means boosting trade with fast-growing economies like Colombia.

What we want to see is the best possible arrangement for trade with and operation within the single European market for business in goods and services here in the United Kingdom.

After decades of delay we are showing that we will take the big decisions when they're the right decisions for Britain.

I have been clear ... (about) the importance that we place on being able not just to trade with but to operate within the European market, and that is for both goods and services. I say that precisely because I am aware of the importance of financial services to the United Kingdom as a whole, to our economy as a whole.

We are going to be ambitious for what we obtain for the United Kingdom and that means a good trade deal as well as control of immigration.

Obviously, we have got negotiations ahead of ourselves. Those negotiations will take time, as I say, there will be some difficult moments, we are going to need some give and take.

We want to have the best possible deal for trade in goods and services with, and operation within, the single European market.

We are not looking to adopt another model that somebody else has in relation to their trade with the European Union.

The UK is leaving the EU but we will continue to play a full role until we leave and we'll be a strong and dependable partner after we have left.

It's vital that we work together to continue to put pressure on Russia to stop its appalling atrocities, its sickening atrocities in Syria.

That is what the government will be aiming for and we will be ambitious in that. Parliament will have its say. These are going to be lengthy negotiations over the course of two years and more - parliament will have its say in a whole variety of ways.

The government is very clear that the vote on the 23rd of June was a vote to ensure that we had control of movement of people from the EU into the UK, but also we want to see the best possible access for businesses for trading in goods and services with, and operating within, that European market.

Let's state one thing loud and clear. We are not leaving the European Union only to give up control of immigration all over again. And we are not leaving only to return to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice. That's not going to happen.

It's not something I have had reason to ask, it's not something that has been served up by other European countries when we have been conducting these various bilateral relations. So I don't have that insight.

But we also believe this should be done in a way that respects the decision of the people of the UK when they voted to leave the EU on 23 June and does not undermine the negotiating position of the government.

The only real solution to peace and stability in Syria is a political transition, and it is time Russia accepted that.

We will repay them with gratitude and put an end to the industry of vexatious claims that has pursued those who served in previous conflicts.

Businesses and people here in the UK want some degree of clarity as to when that timing is going to be. I want to give people more certainty so we will see a much smoother process as we enter those negotiations.

We will invoke Article 50 no later than the end of March next year.

We will introduce, in the next Queen's speech, a Great Repeal Bill that will remove the European Communities Act from the statute book.

So this is not the time to turn away from our United Nations. It is the time to turn towards it.

Every working day in the United Kingdom one million people wake up and go to work for an American company. And every day in the United States one million people wake up and go to work for a UK company.

In terms of the negotiations with the European Union, we will be getting the right deal for the United Kingdom and that is the right deal in terms of trade in goods and services because we recognize the importance of both.

From our home grown start-ups to international fashion houses – every business in the industry will play a major role in ensuring we make a success of Brexit.

I know many people are keen to see rapid progress and to understand what post-Brexit Britain will look like. We are getting on with that vital work but we must also think through the issues in a sober and considered way.

We want to be even more outward looking around the whole of the world, and Australia, with our long-standing ties and our close relationship, will be one of the first countries we will be looking to.

I am very clear also that the British people also don't want the issue of Article 50 just being kicked into the long grass.

And while I recognize there will be some differences between us, there are some complex and serious areas of concern and issues to discuss, I hope we will be able to have a frank and open relationship and dialogue.

There will be no second referendum, no attempt to turn the clock back or get out of this. (Britain) will be leaving the European Union.

The message for the G20 is that Britain is open for business as a bold, confident, outward-looking country and we will be playing a key role on the world stage. My ambition is that Britain will be a global leader in free trade.

This is not something the Prime Minister would agree with … The British people think that borders are important, having more control over our borders is important, and that is an issue we need to address.

This is a big infrastructure decision and it's right that a new prime minister and a new government take the time to make sure that they are fully informed before they take that decision. The government will make a decision in September.

What we need to do in negotiating the deal is to ensure that we listen to what people have said about the need for controls on free movement, but we also negotiate the right deal and the best deal of trade in goods and services for the British people.

We benefitted from a common travel area between the UK and the Republic of Ireland for many years before either country was a member of the EU. There is a strong will on both sides to preserve it and so we must now focus on securing a deal that is in the interests of both of us.

Britain stands shoulder to shoulder with France.' Meanwhile the Tour De France race Director Christian Prudhomme says that the race will not be cancelled by, people who want to change our way of living.

It is not anti-business to suggest that big business needs to change.

Crucially I had huge support in my husband and that was very important for me. I mean, he was a real rock for me, he has been all the time we've been married, but particularly then of course being faced with the loss of both parents within a relatively short space of time.

There will be no attempts to rejoin it by the back-door, no second referendum. The country voted to leave the European Union and as prime minister I will make sure we leave the European Union.

Following last week's referendum, our country needs strong clear leadership to steer us through the uncertainty following the Brexit vote. The next leadership needed to unite the Conservative party and the country.

Our good budgetary situation is having a positive effect and we will be able to bring about a small measure of tax relief, amounting to six billion euros for 2017 and 2018.

What the British people voted for on the 23rd of June was to bring some control into the movement of people from the EU into the UK. A points-based system, does not give you that control.

No one should have to endure what the families and survivors have been through. No one should have to fight year after year, decade after decade in search of the truth.

This is obviously an ongoing investigation, and we are working very closely with the Belgian authorities to ascertain as much information as possible about the individuals involved.

I want the right deal for trade in goods and services and what we are doing at the moment … is listening to businesses here in the UK, listening to different sectors, finding out what it is that is most important to them.

That's why we've already agreed measures like hotspots. They now need to be implemented.

We are working very hard with the French authorities and with Eurotunnel to ensure we increase security at Coquelles so we don't see people coming through the tunnel…We all want to see the channel tunnel operating fully, the port of Calais being able to operate fully so people can go about their journeys without this kind of disruption.

President Essebsi is the first democratically elected president of Tunisia. Tunisia is a symbol of what is possible and we've had a meeting this morning with my Interior minister colleagues which has shown the determination that we all have to fight against this perverted ideology that is causing this death and destruction.

We need to do everything we can to help this community feel safe and secure in our country. I would hate it for British Jews not to feel that they have a home here in Britain – safe, secure and a vital part of our community.

It is right that where people failed in their duty they should take responsibility. The police and local council failed the victims of these awful crimes and failed the people of Rotherham.

The public rightly want answers to how victims' voices were ignored for so long. While we can never right this wrong, we must learn the lessons to prevent the same from ever happening again.

I hardly need to tell the House, (that) the government strongly disagrees with this ruling. Qatada is a dangerous man, a suspected terrorist who is accused of serious crimes in his home country of Jordan.

Let me say here and now, in this house and on the record, that as Home Secretary I will do everything in my power to ensure that the families and the public get the truth.

I would ask the public to remain vigilant. The decision to change the threat level is taken by Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre independently of Ministers and is based on the very latest intelligence, considering factors such as capability, intent and timescale. Substantial continues to indicate a high level of threat and the threat level is kept under constant review.

The suspect package originated in Yemen. It was removed fro examination by forensic experts. I can say at this stage that it did contain explosive material but it is not yet clear whether it was a viable explosive device.
