Vince Cable comments on May’s Brexit meeting with business leaders

by Steve Beasant on 13 November, 2017

European business leaders are meeting Theresa May today and are expected to demand clarification over the terms of any transitional deal on Brexit.

Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable said: 

“Most businesses are nervous about the Government’s pursuit of a hard Brexit.

“Any transitional deal needs to maintain the status quo so as to provide the certainty that business needs.

“The Prime Minister must push for a deal that keeps us within the Customs Union and Single Market.

“Even then it is difficult to see how this could be any better than our current circumstances, which is why the British people should be given a vote on any deal.”
