Ross Denton, EU, Commerce & Trade Partner:
"Assuming remaining in the EU is not politically feasible, the draft Withdrawal Agreement should be supported by business because it is the only option on the table that demonstrates a clear and deliverable pathway to avoiding an economic cliff edge caused by a hard Brexit. As our research has shown, a hard Brexit will cause considerable economic damage to the UK economy. While the UK Government appreciates this, it is clear that many constituency MPs involved in the UK approval (or not) of this Agreement do not. Business should urgently take steps to ensure that they do."
