The United Kingdom is unlikely to secure full access to the European Union's single market unless it allows unrestricted access to its labor market for EU citizens, Ireland's Finance Minister said on Monday. Pro-Brexit British politician Boris Johnson said on Sunday that Britain could secure full access without signing up to free movement elements when it leaves the 28-nation EU following last week's referendum.

This is extremely small on any measure." said Goldman Sachs.
