The EU may be host­ing a com­pe­ti­tion to see which of its mem­ber states will get to host the EMA, but British of­fi­cials in­sist that there’s ab­solute­ly no rea­son for the agency to de­camp from Lon­don just be­cause the UK is ex­it­ing the union.

The Fi­nan­cial Times re­ports that David Davis, Brex­it sec­re­tary, is fight­ing to keep the drug agency as well as the Eu­ro­pean Bank­ing Au­thor­i­ty at Ca­nary Wharf, along with the hun­dreds of work­ers and steady flow of vis­i­tors that each re­ceives every year.
