To ask Her Majesty's Government how they plan to respond to concerns raised by businesses and manufacturers arising from a perceived lack of progress in the Brexit negotiations.
My ministerial colleagues and I, along with officials in my Department, continue to engage broadly across the economy to hear business’ priorities and issues, to reassure them on our vision for the future economic partnership with the EU, and discuss the opportunities presented by Brexit.
We have made significant progress in the negotiations, including securing political agreement on the implementation period, something of great importance to many businesses and manufacturers.
As the Prime Minister has said, shortly we will set out in detail the UK’s position on our future relationship in a White Paper. This will give detailed, ambitious and precise explanations of our position to business, so that they can continue to operate and invest with confidence.
