RAAB SEEN AS SAFER PAIR OF HANDS

Yorkshire Post - Business - - FRONT PAGE -

The fact that David Davis has spent just four hours in talks with his op­po­site num­ber at the EU Michel Barnier this year meant his res­ig­na­tion would not have any great im­pact on ne­go­ti­a­tions. It has been left to a se­nior civil ser­vant, Olly Rob­bins, to con­duct the day-to­day ne­go­ti­a­tions.

In July 2016, Mr Davis wrote that “within two years, be­fore the ne­go­ti­a­tion with the EU is likely to be com­plete ... we can ne­go­ti­ate a free trade area mas­sively larger than the EU”.

Busi­ness is hope­ful that Do­minic Raab will have a greater un­der­stand­ing of the com­plex­i­ties of leav­ing the EU.
