CBI comments on Brexit technical note

Josh Hardie, CBI Deputy Director-General, said:

“The business community will welcome the greater clarity provided today on the Government’s intentions for a time-limited implementation period.

"The UK is leaving the EU in March 2019, and it is vital for investment and jobs that negotiators agree transitional arrangements that provide continuity both in terms of the UK’s relationship with the EU as well as the UK’s relationship with the rest of the world.

"A jobs-first transition period which delivers the economic status quo from outside the EU is business’ top priority for the UK Government in the next 60 days.”
