SCC comments on today's events in Westminster

Category: Brexit
Published:

Commenting on Saturday’s Parliamentary debate, Dr Liz Cameron OBE, Chief Executive of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce (SCC), said:

“The Scottish Chambers of Commerce welcomes that a ‘no deal’ exit of the EU has been avoided. But in the coming days, the UK government must answer the many questions businesses are posing on the Prime Minister’s deal – and its potential impact on trade, investment, communities and jobs

“We must not come out of the EU without a deal come the 31st of October. But nor can we continue in this endless cycle.

“More delay hurts business planning and confidence and is, frankly, damaging to the UK’s reputation on the global stage.

“Nevertheless, as frustrating as it would be to many in business, a short extension to unlock a comprehensive solution and a smooth transition is still infinitely preferable to an overnight economic shock on Hallowe’en.

‘’We urge parliamentarians to find their resolve and seek a consensus quickly. Unless there is an answer to this three-year Brexit mess, companies and the economy will continue to suffer.”
