BRUSSELS (Reuters) - A new trade deal between Britain and the European Union is not possible unless London respects the Withdrawal Agreement that new UK draft leglisation overrides, European Commission Vice President Maros Sefcovic said on Wednesday.

Sefcovic told the European Parliament that there would also be no “fair deal” on trade until an agreement on fisheries is reached.
