George Brandis explains why Brexit could benefit Australians

The Australian High Commissioner in the UK says there is an upside for Australia if Brexit goes through.

Former Attorney-General George Brandis tells Ross Greenwood it could lead to trade deals with the UK.

“In the event that Brexit occurs then we will seek to secure a free trade agreement with the United Kingdom.

“And there have already been a series of preliminary discussions in relation to that, stretching back to just after the referendum in 2016.”
