The single market in financial services: we need the UK on board

Michel Barnier

"There is always much talk about great divides between the Commission and the UK on financial services. However, many of those differences are exaggerated. As the Commissioner for financial services, I have consistently worked closely and constructively with the UK. Taking account of British specificities, as far as possible. This has not been by accident, but by design." Speech by Commissioner Barnier.
