To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they intend to convene a meeting with representatives from the industrial product supply sector to address concerns relating to uncertainty over the proposed transition period after the UK leaves the EU, in particular (1) how long that transition period will last, and (2) the parameters of rights and regulations that will apply during that period.

In the last year Ministers and officials have met over 2000 stakeholder organisations, including over 600 businesses at a series of stakeholder events. After the last General Election, we set up a business advisory group with an EU Exit focus that’s attended by senior Government ministers, to give higher priority to companies’ concerns in the EU exit negotiations. We want to agree the terms of a time-limited implementation period as soon as possible - giving businesses across the UK certainty.
