Ministers and officials from BEIS have engaged extensively with manufacturing businesses. We have stepped up efforts to ensure businesses across the UK, including in Northern Ireland, are prepared to leave the EU on 31 October, through enhanced national communication and engagement campaigns. Get Ready Roadshow events took place in Derry/Londonderry on 7 October and in Belfast on 8 October. Through the Business Readiness Fund, funding has been allocated for actions specifically delivered and targeted in Northern Ireland – in addition to UK wide applications covering Northern Ireland.
