The Government will aim to outline a Brexit blueprint “later this year”, according to the Chancellor, in a move that he said would send a “reassuring signal” to businesses and markets.
Global finance chiefs warned on Sunday that the UK’s decision to leave the EU had raised the risks facing a world already in danger of slipping into a low growth trap.
Speaking after a G20 meeting dominated by the referendum result, Philip Hammond said outlining a path for exit that meant other European leaders were on the “same page” as the UK was a priority for the Government.
