Chamber Members Frustrated By Brexit Delays

15 Apr 2019

Further Brexit delays causes uncertainty for Chamber members and businesses across the Black Country.

As the UK heads for a Halloween Brexit after the remaining 27 EU nations offer Theresa May a further six months to ratify or rethink her withdrawal deal, Black Country Chamber Policy Officer, Dan Turner said, “Extending Article 50 until October 31st means that uncertainty continues for a further six months.

“For almost three years since the referendum, businesses across the Black Country and UK had prepared to leave the EU in March 2019.

“The continued impasse in Westminster means that businesses continue to wait for guarantees and some answers to real-world, practical questions.

"Black Country Chamber members are fed up with the political drama of the Westminster bubble and are fearful that crucial domestic policy decisions are being delayed or ignored due to the dominance of Brexit.

"Talking to our members they have a real concern over the welfare and prospects of their employees; as cashflow, late payments, transport, congestion, apprenticeships and innovation are constantly on the agenda between us and our members– all of which are on the backburner whilst politicians argue about Brexit.”


The second extension to the Brexit process - initially intended to conclude on March 29 - definitively stopped the clock on a no-deal withdrawal on Friday with less than 48 hours to go.
