To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they intend to incorporate representatives from industry sectors in the process of negotiating both transition and long-term deals.
The Government has met and continues to meet with businesses from every sector of the economy, to hear industry views on opportunities and key points to inform our negotiating positions. Industry representatives also have regular opportunities to input their views at both the Prime Minister’s Business Advisory Council and the Business Advisory Group, which is chaired by the Chancellor, Business Secretary and Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union.
The Government is pursuing an implementation period based on the existing structure of EU rules and regulations, to provide certainty and continuity to business and so that businesses only need to make one set of changes as we move to our future partnership. Now that we are into phase two, we are confident we can make rapid progress.
