FSB NI : Continued Brexit uncertainty ‘highly regrettable’

Responding to news that the Meaningful Vote on the Withdrawal Agreement has been suspended, FSB NI Policy Chair, Tina McKenzie has expressed disappointment at the continued delay and consequent uncertainty.

Commenting Tina McKenzie said:

“Since the Brexit referendum, businesses have had to endure continuous uncertainty which has hampered their ability to invest and plan for the future.

“We gave a cautious welcome to the revised Withdrawal Agreement, as it could form the basis to provide some much needed stability, while recognising there are still many practical details to be ironed out.

“It is highly regrettable that once again Parliament has not been able to ratify a Withdrawal Agreement, instead deciding to delay further.

“Small businesses in Northern Ireland are simply fed up of persistent uncertainty and the onus is on all political leaders to restore certainty soon by reaching agreement.”
