Any decision on Brexit deal will happen in New Year - British trade minister

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) British trade minister Liam Fox said on Sunday (December 16) talks with the European Union to secure "assurances" for parliament on Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal will take time, with a decision expected in the New Year.

With British Prime Minister Theresa May facing deadlock in parliament over the deal and the EU offering little so far, more politicians are talking about the possibility of Britain leaving without an agreement or a second referendum that could stop Brexit from happening.

With less than four months before Britain is due to leave in March, Brexit, the biggest shift in trade and foreign policy for more than 40 years, is proving anything but smooth, complicated by the deep divisions in parliament and across the country.
