After parliament’s unequivocal rejection of Theresa May’s Brexit proposal, business groups are getting increasingly vocal about the dangers of leaving the EU without a deal. In short, they’re telling politicians on all sides of the House to get their acts together.
The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) and Institute of Directors (IoD) both warned against the danger of a no-deal Brexit and said that the current impasse is causing mayhem for businesses.
Adam Marshall, Director-General of the BCC, said:
"There are no more words to describe the frustration, impatience, and growing anger among business after two-and-a-half years on a high-stakes political rollercoaster ride that shows no sign of stopping.
"The overriding priority for both government and parliament must now be to avoid the clear danger that a no-deal exit on the 29 March would pose to businesses and communities across the UK.
Stephen Martin, Director-General of the IoD, said:
"We are… two months out from leaving the EU, and firms still do not know basic information such as the processes they would need to comply with for day one of no deal.
"This alone makes letting the uncertainty carry on simply unacceptable."
