LONDON (Reuters) – Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said on Thursday it was in Britain’s best interests to strike a transition deal with the European Union, regardless of whatever form Brexit takes.
“It is in the interests of the country to have some time to transition to whatever relationship there is,” Carney said in a BBC radio interview, a day after the central bank published a range of Brexit scenarios it said banks could have to deal with.
