Boris Johnson pledged to “waste no time” in delivering Brexit before moving on to the “people’s priorities” of funding schools and hospitals.

In his New Year message, the prime minister promised to complete the U.K.’s divorce from the European Union by the end of January, repeating the campaign message that saw his Conservative Party win its largest majority in more than three decades in the Dec. 12 general election.
