LONDON (Reuters) - Britain said on Monday it intended to produce a draft Free Trade Agreement (FTA) before its next round of negotiations with the European Union later this month.

“The next negotiating round will take place on 18-20 March in London. The UK expects to table a number of legal texts, including a draft FTA, beforehand,” senior minister Michael Gove said in a statement to parliament.
