UK to have draft free trade agreements before transition phase ends-minister

MANCHESTER, England, Oct 1 (Reuters) - Britain expects to have draft free trade agreements on the table long before it reaches the end of a Brexit transitional period which is expected to run for two years after 2019, trade minister Liam Fox said on Sunday.

Prime Minister Theresa May used a speech in Florence late last month to set out her plans for Brexit, which will include a two year transitional phase to allow companies to prepare for Britain’s exit from the European Union in March 2019.
