LONDON

Two-thirds of British citizens want an extension to the Brexit transition period in order to focus on the coronavirus outbreak, according to a new poll.

The poll was commissioned by Best for Britain, a pro-EU membership campaign group, and HOPE not Hate, an anti-racism campaign group.

It found that 64% of Brits agreed with the statement “The government should request an extension to the transition period in order to focus properly on the Coronavirus,” with 36% agreeing with the statement “The Brexit transition period must end on 31 December whether a deal has been fixed or not.”
