Brexit Sec Davis says UK wants a free-trade deal when it leaves the EU
Brexit Sec Davis, in an interview with the BBC, notes that the UK wants a free-trade deal when it leaves the EU.
Says the odds of the UK exiting without a deal had "dropped dramatically" (after Friday's joint EU-UK statement).
Says the deal struck by May on Friday to move to the next phase of talks was a "statement of intent".
Davis aims for a "bespoke" deal with the EU within 8 months.
Davis s aiming for "overarching" agreement with no tariffs (included service industries).
