Thank you Ms. Scott Cato. There is a blue
card request from Mr Rowland. Will you accept? Yes Mr. Rowland you have the floor Thank you very much I’d just like to ask Ms. Scott Cato what empirical proof she has that the end of the transition period, when we will be leaving the European Union, hopefully on a Canada-plus style trade deal, will result in a cliff edge? When, as far as I am aware, she does not have any degree in economics or maybe she has some business experience that will give some empirical proof that that will be the case. So I was wondering whether you could answer that question why you are so certain that the United Kingdom will suffer as a result? Obviously you haven’t been paying much attention to my C.V because I was and I remain a professor of economics. I also have expertise in trade policy and have been studying the trade negotiations from the beginning. I rely on the expertise of other trade experts, all of whom have said it takes much longer than the time available to negotiate a treaty and the likelihood is if we go ahead with Boris Johnson’s deal, we will end up in exactly the same crisis facing a no deal Brexit at the end of 2020. I think Mr. Rowland stands corrected.
