BREXIT - Food and Drink Federation response to Prime Minister's statement

On the 10 December 2018, the Prime Minister delayed the vote in Parliament (due on the 11 December) on the Brexit Withdrawl Treaty pending futher 'reassurances' from the EU.

FDF has issued the following press notice:

Responding to the Prime Minister's statement today, Ian Wright CBE, Chief Executive, Food and Drink Federation, said:

“FDF members will be dismayed by the political and economic chaos provoked by a further delay to the Brexit process.

“Every political decision takes us closer to the catastrophe of no-deal. Each extra day of uncertainty diverts time, effort and investment. It undermines growth and employment. And as we have seen from the weakness of Sterling, constrains businesses ability to plan and export.

“The confidence of the business community in political decision-makers is hanging by a thread.”
