Sure they can, to be activate upon clearance of any hurdles. But the message of support is the value in itself. This is about negotiations.
Kinda difficult to negotiate a trade deal when nobody knows what deal will be agreed between UK and the EU.

Quote:
"Nobody with any sense from China, the U.S., Brazil or wherever is going to engage with the UK other than a friendly drink in the bar until the UK has a regime with the EU," retired British trade negotiator Roderick Abbott told Reuters.

"That gives them the yardstick against which you negotiate," said Abbott, who during his more than 40-year career worked on trade for the British government, the European Commission and the World Trade Organization (WTO).
