LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s parliament will vote to approve a trade deal with the European Union on Dec. 30, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Thursday following the announcement of an agreement with Brussels.

He said the deal would be available for scrutiny, “followed by a parliamentary vote, I hope, on December the 30th”.
