BCC: Government must act now to prevent ‘no deal’ by default on 29th March


26th February 2019

Dr Adam Marshall, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce comments on Cabinet meeting and the Prime Minister’s statement to the House of Commons on the Brexit negotiations:

“At this pivotal moment, the government must take decisive steps to avoid the damage that a messy and disorderly exit would cause to business and the economy in just a month’s time. 

“It is time to be honest. Government and its agencies are not prepared for a ‘no deal’ exit on 29th March. Neither are many businesses. 

“The overriding priority must be to assure businesses, employees, investors and communities that an unwanted ‘no deal’ scenario will not be allowed to happen by default on March 29th.”
