Brexit Must Be Completed By 2022

Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond said on Friday that the transition to Britain fully establishing its new relationship with the European Union must be complete by the time of the next scheduled parliamentary election in 2022.

“People have talked about a year, two years, maybe three years,” he said in a BBC radio interview. “I think there’s a broad consensus that this process has to be completed by the scheduled time of the next general election which is in June 2022.”
