Negotiations with Brussels are currently deadlocked over the right of EU vessels to fish in British waters and industrial subsidies. Unless a new trade deal is in place when the Brexit transition period finishes at the end of the year a ‘no deal’ exit on World Trade Organisation terms will occur.

Boris Johnson has already ruled out any extension to the Brexit transition period.

Whilst in the transition period Britain must still pay into the EU’s budget and accept lots of regulations coming from Brussels.

Speaking to the Mail on Sunday Lord Frost said: “We are not going to be a client state.

“We are not going to compromise on the fundamentals of having control over our own laws.

“We are not going to accept level playing field provisions that lock us in to the way the EU do things; we are not going to accept provisions that give them control over our money or the way we can organise things here in the UK and that should not be controversial.

“That’s what being an independent country is about, that's what the British people voted for and that's what will happen at the end of the year, come what may.”

Lord Frost argued the EU has yet to accept the UK voted to become a fully independent nation.

He warned Brussels “have not accepted that in key areas of our national life we want to be able to control our own laws and do things our way and use the freedoms that come after Brexit”.
