To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they were consulted by the British Chambers of Commerce prior to the decision of that organisation to remove itself from the Association of European Chambers of Commerce and Industry; what assessment they have made of that decision; and what powers they have, if any, to reverse that decision.

The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) is an organisation that is independent of Her Majesty’s Government. The BCC’s membership of any other organisations is a matter for the BCC to consider and decide upon. They did not consult with the Government prior to making this decision and the Government has no power to reverse it.
