Last quote by Philip Hammond on Brexit

We are also clear that during this period our borders must continue to operate smoothly; goods bought on the internet must still cross borders, businesses must still be able to supply their customers across the EU, and our innovative, world-leading companies must be able to hire the talent they need, including from within the EU.feedback

All quotes by Philip Hammond on Brexit

I have said that I think it is going to be more than months, it is going to be a couple of years, probably, something in that range. It possibly could. I think this is something we will want to discuss with our European Union partners.feedback

One of the ways of kick-starting stronger growth in the economy is to give businesses and consumers a bit more certainty about the next few years. A transition period, an interim structure with the European Union would give businesses and consumers that degree of certainty.feedback

In victory, you deserve Champagne. In defeat, you need it.feedback

In an issue as important to our nation's future as our exit from the European Union, I welcome any opportunity to build consensus across the House (Parliament) and across the nation. My focus is ensuring that we get a Brexit deal that protects our existing patterns of trade and commercial engagement with the European Union, as well as over time allowing us to explore new opportunities beyond the European Union.feedback

I think on many fronts it would be helpful if my colleagues, all of us, focused on the job in hand. If you want my opinion, some of the noise is generated by people who are not happy with the agenda which I, over the last few weeks, have tried to advance of ensuring that we achieve a Brexit which is focused on protecting our economy, protecting our jobs and making sure we can have continued rising living standards in the future.feedback

The way to get the economy moving, the way to restore business confidence and then consumer confidence, is to give as much clarity as possible as early as possible, which is why I have been talking over the last four or five weeks about the importance of a transition arrangement.feedback

My preference is that we negotiate a transitional structure which takes us outside of those memberships but in the transition phase replicates as much as possible of the existing arrangements, so that the shock to business is minimised for the transition period. We can't have a perpetual transitional period undermining the concept of Brexit itself. The EU will remain our largest trading partner and our nearest neighbours, and it would be madness not to seek to have the closest possible arrangement with them going forward.feedback

We've got a job to do. I expect that the public will take the view, does take the view, that the Government has been elected, it's formed an administration, and now we should stop navel-gazing and get on with the job in hand, deliver Brexit, get the very best deal we can for Britain.feedback

There's a significant constituency of people who voted to remain in the EU but have accepted the decision, but what they want to see is a Brexit that looks sensible to them.feedback

That is the issue, when I talk about Brexit that supports British jobs, British investment, British business, I mean a Brexit that avoids those cliff edges. That ensures we segway seamlessly from the customs union that we are in at the moment to a new arrangement in the future that will continue to allow British goods to flow. We have got to make sure our border continues to work seamlessly and that's probably the number one challenge for business.feedback

What the country needs now is a period of calm while we get on with the job in hand. We've got some very serious issues to address, including the Brexit negotiations just starting. Theresa is leading the Government and I think the Government needs to get on with this job.feedback
