Brexit could cost 500000 United Kingdom jobs

Asked what the United Kingdom could offer in return for access to the EU's single market in services, Hammond told Die Welt: "Every time European firms raise capital through the City of London and do so more cheaply than they could raise it elsewhere in Europe, that makes those businesses that little bit more competitive".

He also made a joint pitch to business leaders with Brexit Secretary David Davis, where they called for a bespoke post-Brexit trade deal with the European Union which would be the "most ambitious in the world".

The Morgan McKinley report is one of the starkest data points yet showing how hiring has slowed as firms struggle to get clarity on what access they will have to Europe's financial markets following Brexit. Such a minister would work alongside Secretary David Davis and deliver constant updates on preparations for the eventuality of a no trade deal scenario.

"This is the first time that the various impacts of Brexit - trade, investment and migration - have been comprehensively assessed across a number of key indicators and sectors at sub-national level", said Cambridge Econometrics director Ben Gardiner. The analysis does however highlight the scale of the comparative risks associated with each scenario and potential outcome from the negotiations.
