TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. It’s estimated the pact will boost the U.K. economy by 2.2 billion dollars “in the long run.” Critics say the deal is insignificant compared to Britain’s trade with its neighbors in the E.U.

VERBATIM: Britain says it’s the biggest new trade deal it has struck since leaving the European Union three years ago. The British government says it had clinched an agreement after almost two years of negotiations to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership. The government says membership will reduce tariffs on British dairy products and other goods and remove red tape for U.K. services.
