BBC News| Philip Hammond on Brexit: Prioritise jobs and living standards

Jobs and living standards must come first as the UK negotiates its exit from the EU, Philip Hammond has said.

The chancellor said it would require "every ounce of skill and diplomacy" to get the right deal, warning that people didn't vote for Brexit to be poorer.

Speaking in London, he said changes to customs arrangements should be phased in and there should be transitional measures to protect key industries.


One of the best things about the election results was that they saved Philip Hammond, who was in for being sacked or reshuffled. He seems to have found his mojo and is doing a fantastic job of making a case for a softer Brexit.
