Prime Minister Boris Johnson promised on Tuesday to take Britain out of the European Union by Jan. 31 and that he would secure a new trade deal with the bloc by the end of 2020.

"We certainly will come out on January the 31st, because we have a deal ... that is oven ready," Johnson said during a live television debate with his rival to be prime minister, Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Corbyn, who is proposing a second referendum on Brexit, said he would honour whatever the result of that vote was.
