What kind of Brexit, hard or soft, does the chancellor of the exchequer Philip Hammond want?

Philip Hammond says Brexit should put "jobs and prosperity first, that reassures employers that they will still be able to access the talent they need, that keeps our market for goods, services and capital open, achieves early agreement on transitional arrangements so trade can carry on flowing smoothly". He also said border checks between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland should be as "frictionless as possible".

This is a contrast to those who say the priority for Brexit should be about controlling immigration and withdrawing from any kind of jurisdiction for the European Court of Justice.
