MINISTERS in the UK are exploring how to make it easier for Britons to holiday in Spain post-Brexit, amid calls for visa-free travel across Europe.
Conservative MP Nigel Huddleston said the UK must make clear to the EU member states that it is in their interests to help British travellers visit them.
Brexit minister David Jones said the issue is being examined, with the ultimate aim being “frictionless” arrangements.
Speaking in the Commons, Mr Huddleston told Mr Jones: “About 15 million Brits will visit Spain, and about 2.5 million Spanish will visit the UK.”
“Will the Government be seeking visa-free travel for tourism across Europe post-Brexit?”
“And in those negotiations will he be making it clear that it’s very much in our European friends’ interests to do so?”
Mr Jones replied: “You are right to highlight the importance of the two-way tourist industry in Europe.”
“These are issues we’re considering but I can assure you our aim is frictionless arrangements.”

There are over 50 countries with Visa free access to the EU. What’s the problem!
This is a non-story.
Hysterical or premeditated scaremongering!
It just proves what slimy people these politicians are. Thousands of people who migrated to EU countries during the ‘marriage’ have just been completely ignored while they concentrate on their populist vote and demand that although they voted to separate from the EU, they can come on holiday without any inconvenience after Brexit. Time they got a life and the migrant UK citizens regained their votes.
