GENEVA (Reuters) - British Trade Secretary Liam Fox told Reuters on Thursday that he had heard the theory that Britain could remain in the European single market for goods but he dismissed the idea.

“The government’s made it clear that we’re leaving the single market and we’re leaving the customs union,” he said. “It’s what we voted for in the referendum, to take back control. We’re not going to surrender it now.”
