Ms Stephenson said: “Can I just ask you about border control?
“Do you think that it is a little bit complacent that we’re sorting this all out now, given that it’s happening next year?”
Mr Gove replied: “No.”
Ms Stephenson said: “Do you think it is a bit chaotic? People have suggested it is.”

The Conservative MP responded: “No, I wouldn’t say that.”
The Channel 4 journalist asked: “You don’t think it is chaotic?
“Do you think really given that this is happening next year, that we should have a plan in place, people have said it shows complacency on behalf of the Government.
“What are your thoughts on that?”
“What is your view on that?”
Mr Gove concluded: “We have got a fantastic negotiator in David Frost.”
In June 2016 the UK voted to leave the European Union.
The UK officially left the European Union at the end of January this year.
Britain is currently in a transition period until the end of 2020 with the EU while the Government negotiates a free trade deal with the bloc.
