Director General Adam Marshall responds to the statement issued at the end of the Brexit discussions at Chequers.
“For Brexit-weary businesses seeking clarity, this agreement brings hope of an end to months of disappointing Westminster in-fighting. For business, there is strength in unity as the UK seeks to develop a new relationship with the EU.
“We welcome the Cabinet’s decision to prioritise trade and the economy under the Prime Minister’s leadership, and will await more detail in the Government’s forthcoming White Paper.
“As Chambers of Commerce have repeatedly argued, the priority must be to deliver clear and unequivocal answers to the practical, real-world questions businesses face. That remains the key test for the intense and complex negotiations that lie ahead.”
