Cheese on the menu for Britain-Canada trade deal

"As I recall, we were slightly held up by the Canadian reluctance to allow too much British cheese to tempt the palettes of Canadians," Boris Johnson said in an interview with CBC News in Canada.

"I think what's really needed now is more affordable, high quality British cheese in Canada and I hope that we can do a deal to allow that," he added.

Canada's Justin Trudeau is to meet Johnson in June as Britain hosts the leaders from the world's Group of Seven (G7) nations in Cornwall.

Bilateral annual trade in goods between Canada and Britain is worth C$29 billion ($22.5 billion).
