"Canadian Spirits manufacturers extend our deep appreciation to Canada's Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade, the Honourable Mary Ng, Canada's Chief Negotiator, Mr., Doug Forsyth and Canada's Chief Agriculture Negotiator, Mr. Aaron Fowler and their teams of experts in concluding this transitional agreement and providing the stability and predictability needed to continue Canadian spirits export growth in the United Kingdom".

"Our negotiators have been working flat out to secure trade deals for the United Kingdom, and from as early next year we have agreed to start work on a new, bespoke trade deal with Canada that will go even further in meeting the needs of our economy", he said.

The new deal preserves CETA's key provision - the elimination of tariffs on 98 per cent of Canadian exports to Britain - until a more comprehensive agreement can be reached later.

The Canada breakthrough would be a relief for the U.K.as it continues contentious talks with the European Union, its largest trading partner, over their own future economic relationship.

But he said MPs must work towards "prompt passage of the necessary legislation to " provide certainty for Canadian businesses.

Lord Frost said he was in "close contact" with Michel Barnier about the situation.

"In the future, we believe there is an opportunity to enhance our bilateral trade and investment ties even further with a comprehensive and ambitious free trade deal", Hyder said. For Canada, the transition has meant CETA continued to apply to its trade relations with Britain.

Britain is now locked in fraught talks with the European Union to set the terms of their future trading relationship for when the post-Brexit transition period ends on December 31. British negotiators are in Brussels this week for intensive negotiations.
