A Bank of England rate setter says the idea of the UK entering a transitional Brexit arrangement with the rest of the EU would be “helpful”.

Ian McCafferty, a member of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee, said a transitional deal for certain sectors of the economy would “clearly be beneficial”.

The economist joined Iain Dale to take your calls on LBC on Thursday.

“On a personal level I think it would be helpful as long as it could be negotiated,” Mr McCafferty told Iain.

“I come from a business background and what we do know is businesses do not like sudden change.

“If we can have a transition period so they can adapt to the new trading and investment relationships that would clearly be beneficial for the economy.”
