Above all, European Union member states want to avoid granting Britain a generous deal that might encourage exit referendums in other European Union countries, with some saying a final agreement must be painful.

Mr Johnson told the BBC's Andrew Marr: 'I want skilled and talented people to come to the United Kingdom if they want to fulfill their dreams in our country - I have no problem with that provided we have control.

In a clip shown as part of the BBC2 documentary Brexit: A Very British Coup?, Sir Alan - who was then a backbencher - said he believed Johnson had only put himself at the head of the Vote Leave campaign to position himself for a Conservative leadership challenge.

Downing Street said May did not have a calendar for triggering Article 50, the clause of the Lisbon treaty which sets a two-year period for negotiating with the EU.

The UK will "probably" begin formal negotiations to leave the European Union early in 2017, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has told the BBC.

Going much further than No 10 has already done, he hinted as well at a new system on immigration in which the visas will be able to be exchanged for trade deals.

Three months after the U.K.'s vote to leave, European leaders are urging Prime Minister Theresa May to make clear her vision for Britain's future EU ties.

Because this would start the clock ticking on an extremely tight two-year deadline for completing the divorce, British officials have been pushing behind the scenes for early consultations with the EU.

"I think people will be wondering whether we want to send a fresh batch of UK Euro MPs to an institution which we are after all we are going to be leaving", he said. Brexit does indeed "involve asking ourselves what kind of country we want to be"- as the Prime Minister said.

On arrival at Downing Street, Mr Schulz admitted the European Parliament was "not the easiest" partner to work with - with 750 members from 28 countries representing 300 parties - but said he was in Britain "to listen and to learn".

State Secretary for EU Affairs Tomas Prouza said British ministers demonstrated a lack of understanding over the EU's "four freedoms" - the free movement of labor, goods, services and capital.

"We can't behave like the East German government who, when faced with an election result they didn't like, said it was time to elect a new people".

One source said that controlling migration would be a top priority, while the government also seeks to stay in the single market.
