“I believe that what everybody wants is to achieve a Brexit which is as frictionless as possible which is the government’s stated position, and which is as smooth as possible, and we have made considerable steps towards providing for that,” he told reporters.

“Business including the automotive industry set out as a priority that it wanted an implementation period and that is what we’ve secured.”
