Ed Miliband comments on Institute of Directors report findings on Brexit preparedness
Ed Miliband MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on an Institute of Directors survey which found half of respondents are not yet prepared for the end of the transition period, said:
“Businesses are experiencing extreme uncertainty, facing the pressures of the coronavirus crisis, a deep recession and the end of the transition period approaching.
“It is vital that Boris Johnson delivers the oven-ready trade deal he promised was ready and then answers the questions so many businesses are asking about the future arrangements they need to plan for.
“Businesses desperately need clarity to prepare for the future – and at the moment, with less than 3 months to go, many sectors are not being given the level of detail they need.
“To help them survive in the here and now and protect jobs, businesses across the country must also have access to the economic support they need as public health restrictions tighten to help tackle the virus.”
