LONDON (Reuters) - British minister Michael Gove ruled out on Sunday asking the European Union for another Brexit delay to secure a new trading relationship with the bloc.

Asked on the BBC’s Andrew Marr show whether a Conservative government would ask for an extension, Gove replied: “No ... We’ll be out of the EU actually by January, we will have formally left.”

“We’ve done a huge amount of work already, alongside the Withdrawal Agreement, in the political declaration which lays the groundwork for the deal we want ... We will secure a deal.”
