The political chaos of Brexit is likely to have an impact on how the Bank of England sets interest rates over the next year.
"If the deal gets through parliament, if we have a transition period, we think the Bank of England will be raising interest rates but not till later next year," Sarah Hewin, Europe economist at Standard Chartered tells the Today programme.
"If we crash out of the EU, then the expectations should be that with a weak economy, the Bank of England would not increase interest rates - it might even cut rates."
However, a no-deal Brexit could also lead to an interest rate rise.
"The Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee has said, 'don't expect it to be one way'. Supply is going to be severely interrupted if we crash out of the EU with no deal," she says.
"That would raise inflation, we'd see higher tariffs which would also cause a fall in the value of the pound, and so the Bank of England might decide that we need to raise interest rates."
