Liam Fox accepts two-year Brexit 'transition phase'


 
International Trade Secretary Liam Fox has told Sky News that he "doesn't have a problem" with a Brexit implementation period.
 
Dr Fox, who has previously suggested a transition deal should last months and not years, said an implementation period of "a couple of years" might be "common sense".
