Brexit is Distracting Us From Our Domestic Agenda – UK Finance Minister


UK Environment Minister Michael Gove accused Finance Minister Philip Hammond of not preparing the country for Brexit without an agreement on the terms of the upcoming “divorce” between London and Brussels, The Daily Telegraph reported late on 20 February, citing its own sources.

UK Finance Minister Philip Hammond has stated that Brexit is distracting “all of us from getting on with the domestic agenda”.

He went on to say that UK lawmakers could be able to vote on an updated withdrawal deal next week.

“There may be an opportunity to bring a vote back to the House of Commons — there may be an opportunity, but that will depend on the progress that is made in the next few days”, Hammond noted.
