Philip Hammond: UK must be pragmatic in Brexit talks

Parmenio Sano | 18 Giugno, 2017, 03:24

Top negotiators will on Monday discuss Britain's financial obligations to the European Union as the long and complicated process of the United Kingdom leaving the bloc finally gets underway.

Philip Hammond, U.K. finance minister, dodged three questions from journalists on whether the U.K. will want to retain access to the EU's single market.

"As we set out in the Article 50 letter, our view is that withdrawal agreement and terms of the future relationship must be agreed alongside each other", a spokesman for the department, which is headed up by David Davis, said.

He wouldn't be drawn on whether he supported Britain's continued membership in the single market and said May's minority government will negotiate in a "pragmatic" manner, striving for a solution that works for both sides.

Philip Hammond, Britain's finance minister, says protecting the British economy should be the main goal of upcoming negotiations over the country's exit from the European Union.


Chancellor Philip Hammond said on Friday that Britain should prioritise jobs and prosperity in talks due to start next week on its departure from the European Union.

"We believe that the withdrawal process can not be concluded without the future relationship also being taken into account", the spokesman said.

In his first public comments since the election, the Chancellor said it was his "clear view" that most people want the talks to "prioritise protecting jobs, protecting economic growth and protecting prosperity".

Brexit talks in Brussels on Monday will focus on the status of expats, the UK's "divorce bill" and the Northern Ireland border, rather than on future trade relations with the European Union, it has been confirmed.
