LONDON (Reuters) – Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday Britain would prosper with new trade deals when asked whether he was preparing to grant tariff-free access for lamb and beef from Australia in a new agreement.

Johnson did not answer directly the question in parliament from the Scottish National Party, but said: “I think there is massive opportunity for Scotland and for the whole of the UK (with free trade deals)”
