Commenting after yesterday’s Withdrawal Deal vote, Stephen Phipson CEO of EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation said:
“After two years of negotiations, Westminster has failed to deliver a workable plan for Brexit. Parliament’s pantomime now continues while business suffers impossible uncertainty which will only worsen investment and the worrying business climate.
“EEF has been consistent: no deal would be disastrous for UK manufacturing and its 2.7 million jobs. The Government and Parliament must act collectively, swiftly and decisively in the best interest of the people and the economy. The time for theatre is over.”
