‘New government must end uncertainty’ says BMA
‘What we need now is a Brexit that will help businesses stabilise and grow’
Tom Reynolds, CEO of the Bathroom Manufacturers Association (BMA), has urged the new government to end uncertainty. Reynolds said that the government should bring stability back to the economy as soon as possible, following the landslide victory on 12 December.
”We have had more than three years of distraction from economic issues whilst Brexit has dominated,” said Reynolds.
“What we need now is a Brexit that will help businesses stabilise and grow. Further brinksmanship and last-minute extensions to the transition period should be avoided. I’d like to see the Prime Minister use his large majority and five-year term to extend the transition period early on. This should be realistic to secure both a comprehensive permanent deal and fully planned withdrawal” he added.
“We are hoping the government will restore business confidence by working swiftly, and will look for evidence of this in the forthcoming Queens Speech” concluded Reynolds.
