Streeting – Hammond’s announcement on Carney an indictment of Brexit mess

The Chancellor of the Exchequer has confirmed, in the House of Commons, that Mark Carney will stay on as Governor of the Bank of England until January 2020.

Commenting, Wes Streeting MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:

“The news that the Governor of the Bank of England is staying on until January 2020 will provide some stability and certainty, but it is also a damning indictment of the Government’s Brexit policy that the Chancellor believes that such an extension is needed to see us through ‘turbulence’.”
