UK FINANCE MINISTER – No-deal Brexit would be a ‘very bad outcome’ for UK – Hammond


The key to securing a Brexit deal the British government can get through parliament is to define more precisely the “temporary” nature of the Irish backstop, British Foreign Secretary Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said.

The backstop, an arrangement to avoid a hard border between European Union member Ireland and British-ruled Northern Ireland after Brexit, has become the main point of contention in the proposed Brexit deal.

Hunt was speaking at a news conference after meeting Germany’s Foreign Minister Heiko Maas in Berlin.
