The Government is currently considering all aspects of its future relationship with the EU, including the precise way in which we will control the movement of EU nationals to Britain after EU exit. We recognise the importance of having access to an affordable, secure and sustainable supply of energy for business and domestic use, as well as continued co-ordination on energy, including for nuclear safety and energy-related research.
