John Springford, of the Centre for European Reform think-tank, said Labour’s decision to rebuff a youth mobility deal — one of the few concrete proposals from the European Commission so far — also sat uneasily with its demand for a deal on service professionals.

“If Labour proves unwilling to offer the EU any significant concessions on the movement of people, dynamic alignment with changing EU rules, and enforcement by the European Court of Justice, then the economic gains from any renegotiation will be small,” he added.
