BritishAmerican Business Responds to Brexit Parliament Vote 12 March 2019

In response to the Agreement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community failing to receive Parliamentary approval, Duncan Edwards, BAB CEO, said:

“The failure to pass the Withdrawal Agreement is disappointing. We have always stressed that any new deal negotiated by the UK and EU would not be as good as the current trading relationship we enjoy, but that an agreement to avoid a ‘no-deal’ scenario is preferable. We now ask that tomorrow the Government listens to the business community and continues to search for a solution.”
