As with all such discussions, they tend to go down to the wire, and we would expect nothing less from these agreements. Each of the UK’s trade partners will have made an assessment of the likelihood of a no deal scenario, and factored in their own domestic situations, when approaching discussions of continuity with the UK.</p>
