This is yet another blow for companies desperate for clarity

Carolyn Fairbairn, CBI Director-General, said:

“This is yet another blow for companies desperate for clarity. Investment plans have been paused for two and a half years.  Unless a deal is agreed quickly, the country risks sliding towards a national crisis.

“Politicians on both sides of the Channel need to show leadership, by building consensus to protect both the UK and EU’s prosperity. No one can afford to head into Christmas with the threat of no-deal costing jobs and hitting living standards.”
