Speaking on the BBC’s Andrew Marr present, Clark mentioned: “As part of the work over the next few weeks I think it would be a mistake to move from one situation and to another and to a third.”

“If we can make progress … as to what the right arrangement is in the long-term, it might be possible to bring that in over that period of time (of a two-year transition period).”
