LONDON (Reuters) - Britain and India will start negotiations for a full free trade deal in the autumn, British trade minister Liz Truss said on Tuesday.

On Monday, Britain and India announced 1 billion pounds ($1.39 billion) of private-sector investment and committed to seek a free trade deal before talks between Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Indian leader Narendra Modi on Tuesday.($1 = 0.7206 pounds)
