Britain can strike trade deal with U.S. under new Brexit plan: PM May's spokeswoman
British Prime Minister Theresa May arrives at an European Union summit in Brussels

LONDON (Reuters) - A spokeswoman for British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Thursday it was wrong to suggest that a new Brexit customs proposal would prevent Britain from striking a new trade deal with the United States.

The Spectator magazine reported earlier that papers given to ministers before a meeting on Friday had suggested that Britain would remain closely aligned with the European Union on customs and this would make it hard to strike trade deals with the United States.

"It is categorically untrue to suggest that we will not be able to strike a trade deal with the U.S." the spokeswoman said. "The PM has always been clear that we will seek a comprehensive and ambitious trade deal with the U.S. that reflects the strength of our trading and investment relationship."
