LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday Britain would take back “full control of our money, our borders and our laws” on Jan. 1 when a status-quo transition arrangement with the European Union ends.

“This country has not only left the European Union but on January 1 we will take back full control of our money, our borders and our laws,” he told parliament, repeating a mantra that helped him win an election last year.
