Last week Bank of England governor Mark Carney has said a “disorderly” Brexit could delay rises in interest rates as the Bank would be obliged to act to shore up the economy.

Mr Carney made clear what he described as a “sharp Brexit” could mean a reassessment of whether an interest rate rise is imminent.

And whatever progress is made towards the “new trading arrangements” with the EU, weaker income growth “is likely to accompany that adjustment”, he said.

On that basis, Financial Director approached The Chancellor Philip Hammond to offer some thoughts- we are awaiting feedback.
