Commenting after last night’s Withdrawal Deal vote, Stephen Phipson CEO of Make UK, the manufacturers’ organisation said:
“The vote was decisive. It is now essential that Parliament brings the curtain down on this farce and removes the risk of no deal today.
“That outcome would be disastrous for the UK manufacturing, jeopardising many thousands of jobs in every constituency in the land.
“Once the risk of no deal is removed, it is vital that Parliament and the Government move swiftly to set out a clear path for the future. Three years of uncertainty have been disastrous for our sector and we must establish a credible plan for the future as quickly as possible.”
