About the Speech:

In the Brexit debate to date, much of the attention has focused on a binary outcome: the UK leaving the EU with a deal, or leaving without one. In his speech to the IIEA, however, Hugo Dixon will present a third option: the UK remaining in the EU. He will argue that the most likely way this could occur would be via a referendum at the end of the Brexit talks. Mr Dixon will outline the various scenarios under which this option might arise.
