The two countries have already agreed workers rights, meaning freedom of movement will remain in the case of a no deal Brexit.

The latest agreements were signed in Davos last week when the UK chancellor Philip Hammond met the Swiss president Ueli Maurer.

They cover road traffic allowing the free carriage of goods and the insurance sector which will continue to be able to trade freely.
