Britain will seek "maximum possible access" to the European market once it leaves the EU , Theresa May has said during PMQs.

The Prime Minister added that the June 23 vote also meant the we should control the movement of people from the EU into the UK.

What we are going to do is be ambitious in our negotiation, to negotiate the best deal for the British people and that will include the maximum possible access to the European market for firms to trade with and operate within, she said.

Ms May also denied that a Government plan to make companies list foreign workers was a case of naming and shaming. 

The PM has granted MPs greater scrutiny over the Brexit process to try to quell a rebellion by Tory backbenchers.
