Once agreed, negotiations can then move on to future relations for the longer term, with Britain hoping to complete a trade deal as early as possible.
The Cabinet did not discuss the position set out so far by the European Commission's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, whose vision of a free trade agreement similar to that struck with Canada in 2016 differs sharply from Mrs May's demand for a bespoke United Kingdom deal delivering a "deep and special partnership".
The European Commission said on Wednesday that a Brexit transition period during which Britain must obey EU rules should last until the end of 2020.
Barnier appeared to throw the Brexiteers a bone on one of their key issues, however, saying that while Britain would be excluded from talks on fishing quotas during the transition, there would be "specific procedural arrangements" to give it a voice.

The Israel-Gaza tensions have apparently been fed by Washington's recognition last week of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Palestinians in the coastal territory have recently fired both rockets and mortar rounds into the Jewish State.

In response to Barnier's warnings to the City, Carney said: "I don't accept the argument that just because it hasn't been done in the past, it can't be done in the future".
The cut-off date for the transition phase is contained in the EU's guidelines for the next phase of Brexit negotiations.
Leading conservative lawmaker Jacob Rees-Mogg slammed this demand as "rather hostile", leaving the United Kingdom "no more than a vassal state, a colony, a serf of the European Union".
"There is no place" for giving Britain's financial services full access to the European Union market, he told a number of newspapers, including Britain's The Guardian.
