SCC COMMENT ON PRIME MINISTER’S BREXIT ANNOUNCEMENT

Commenting on the Prime Minister’s announcement to seek an extension to the Brexit deadline, Dr Liz Cameron OBE, Director & Chief Executive of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said:

“The Prime Minister acknowledged this Brexit process is doing damage to our politics, but what we need parliamentarians to realise is the damage it is doing to our business confidence.

“On-going uncertainty is having a real and negative impact on investment and confidence in Scotland. Avoiding a messy and disorderly exit from the EU is still the top priority for Scotland’s business communities.

“The Prime Minister may have issued a revised road map towards a potential solution, but there are still no guarantees that we aren’t careering towards a catastrophe.”
