UK might stay aligned with some EU regulations: Johnson

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain may choose to remain aligned with European Union standards for some products to help trade after Brexit, British foreign minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday, but London must have ultimate control over national regulatory decisions.

Johnson, a prominent Brexit campaigner, said in a speech Britain could strike a “great” free trade deal with the EU after it leaves the bloc while taking back control of tariffs and regulations in order to secure deals with other countries.
