UK could ask for Brexit transition beyond 2020, business minister says
Asked on BBC radio about an extension to the transition period, Clark said: "It would be at our request."
"It would be our discretion, it would be purely for us if we wanted to and there are reasons we may not want to take that up, it would be available to us," he said. He did not rule out a suggestion that it could last until 2022.
"If we were six weeks away from concluding a future economic partnership and agreeing that then it may make sense to extend the transition period," Clark said. (Reporting by Guy Faulconbridge; editing by Michael Holden)
