UK’s Hammond declines to say if he’d resign in no-deal Brexit scenario

Britain’s Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond leaves Downing Street in London, Britain,

Finance minister Philip Hammond declined to say on Friday if he would quit if Britain leaves the European Union without a deal to smooth its transition.

Asked if he would step down from his post in this scenario, Hammond told BBC radio: “I’m not going to speculate because a lot depends on the circumstances, what happens.

“The responsibility I have is to manage the economy in what is in the best interests of the British people. Now I clearly do not believe that making a choice to leave without a deal would be a responsible thing to do.”
