The BEIS Committee’s recent report stated that the industrial strategy Green Paper

“provides little clarity on how…sectoral deals will work in practice”,

and that it appears to lack “political will”, falling short of

“providing a clear framework for decision making in the long term.”

Is it lack of clarity or lack of political will that has led to a bespoke Brexit deal for certain manufacturers while leaving others, and indeed other industries, in a state of uncertainty?
