LONDON Dec 14 British Brexit minister David
Davis said on Wednesday the government would do all it could to
make sure business gets the maximum access to the European
Union's single market while minimising disruption in its talks
with the bloc.
Davis also said the government was still doing policy work
to prepare for the negotiations with the EU and had yet to take
all of its decisions, but did not rule out the possibility of a
"transitional arrangement" to help business avoid a cliff edge
after two years of talks.
"Whatever the transitional arrangement is, we need to know
where we're going before we decide on the transition," he told
lawmakers at a question-and-answer session.
"It seems to me that it will be perfectly possible to know
what the end game will be in two years."
