Asked in an interview with U.S. broadcaster CNBC whether the risk of “no deal” had risen, Hammond said: “Personally I don’t think so.”
“It is so blindingly obviously in the best interests of both the UK and the European Union 27 that we do reach a deal so we can continue trading together.”
Hammond was speaking in the United States during a visit to attend an International Monetary Fund meeting and see finance industry representatives.
