Last quote by Mike Hawes

Our experience of trade deals is that they take many, many years. We have the advantage that our regulations are in the same place but all the sounds from Brussels has been to say that it will be the divorce first and the rest later. It is no surprise that this reality is now taking hold in the UK. I think Boris Johnson has accepted as much. We don't always see eye to eye with the hardline Brexiteers. There are around 400 models of cars on the market and it is a very small minority, albeit an important one, made [solely] in the UK.feedback
