FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Forum of Private Business has welcomed the clarity provided by the Prime Minister today, but expresses the need for action.
Ian Cass, Managing Director of the Forum, said: “We’ve often heard the Prime Minister talk about the need for frictionless trade after Brexit, so we welcome today’s movement to outline the detail of this and other aspects of our future economic arrangement.”
Cass strikes a cautious tone though, adding: “For our members, the main frustration is the time it's taking to reach an agreement. Their main frustration is not knowing what they are dealing with going forward, so the sooner these estimates become some sort of firm plan with a clear destination, and the steps to get there, are outlined, the better for Forum members. The longer it takes, the more difficult it is for them to do business. We would like to see the government being far more proactive rather than reactive, which appears to be part of the problem at the moment.”
