I welcome the hon. Lady’s question and her focus on financial stability, because, as I said in my answer to my hon. Friend Stephen Hammond, we absolutely recognise the importance of financial stability for the whole of Europe, including the UK, and of reaching a deal with our European counterparts. When I met the financial services industry in Scotland to talk about these matters, it was clear on the importance of financial stability, and it was very clear on the vast importance of the United Kingdom market for Scottish financial services.
