Abbott wants totally free trade with UK

AAP logoAAP 2/10/2016

Former prime minister Tony Abbott wants Australia to reach a comprehensive trade agreement with Britain to take effect immediately upon them leaving the European Union.

He will tell a business breakfast in London on Monday the deal should have "no tariffs or quotas whatsoever on any goods traded between our two countries -- there should be no exceptions, no carve-outs, nothing", News Corp Australia reports.

The deal should also offer a full recognition of each country's credentials and standards, meaning, for example, if a car is eligible for registration in Australia it could also be registered in the UK, he will say.
