He said: "Talk of a bare-bones deal could pause investment".

In his speech, the PM will say: "We have often been told that we must choose between full access to the European Union market, along with accepting its rules and courts on the Norway model, or an ambitious free trade agreement, which opens up markets and avoids the full panoply of European Union regulation, on the example of Canada".
