LONDON (Reuters) – Senior British minister Michael Gove said on Thursday that Britain hoped to reach a trade deal with the European Union but that talks might go on until after Christmas.

“We will want to ensure the parliament has a say, and a chance to scrutinises any agreement that’s reached,” Gove told a parliamentary committee.

“So realistically it’s in the days immediately after Christmas,” he said of the deadline for agreement.
