Financial stability risks

Commenting after the session, Rt Hon. Andrew Tyrie MP, Chairman of the Treasury Committee, said:

"The Governor has given strong advice today, both to the UK Government and to the governments of the rest of the EU. He's told the Government that it is "highly advisable" to seek agreement to transitional arrangements, and at the start of the negotiations. 

And he's also told the UK's negotiating counterparts in the EU that they, more than the UK, are vulnerable to financial stability risks during the period of transition. I hope they are all listening."
