In spite of the fact that negotiations between Britain and the EU have stalled, British Transport Minister Chris Grayling reiterated his belief that Britain would not leave without settling on a new deal with the bloc.
Negotiations between EU and Prime Minister Theresa May’s government have hit a snag as they try to secure a separation settlement and agreement on their future dealings, thus giving rise to the possibility of Britain walking away from the table without a deal in hand.
“I don’t think we’ll get to that position,” Grayling, who pushed for “Leave” at last year’s referendum, said when asked what the consequences of leaving without a deal would be.
Grayling added that he didn’t think Brexit would stop flights from flying in and out of the country and also said that it was his belief that Britain would remain a solid member of the European Aviation Safety Agency, which governs safety legislation.
“I’m of the view that at the end of the negotiations I would expect that to be the case,” he said.
