We have noted this report and will consider its findings alongside other evidence on the potential impact of EU Exit on the UK manufacturing sector when developing manufacturing policy, and work closely with industry to deliver the best possible outcomes for British manufacturers.

Although we recognise the challenges faced by EU Exit, we remain committed to making the UK the best place in Europe to own and grow a business after the UK leaves the EU.

This includes supporting businesses that trade with the EU and wider international markets, as well as continuing to encourage record foreign direct investment in the support of business and communities up and down the country.
