LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s health minister said it was in the national interest to deliver the prime minister’s Brexit deal rather than a customs union, as proposed by opposition Labour after the two sides started talks to try to break a deadlock over Brexit.
“It is in the national interest to deliver the prime minister’s deal rather than a customs union, and I’ve talked in public about the problems with a customs union, but I do want to see an outcome to these talks so we deliver Brexit,” Hancock told BBC television on Thursday.
