Brexit plea by bosses


OUR cap­tains of in­dus­try to­day send a mes­sage to EU ne­go­tia­tors, or­der­ing them: “Get a bloody move on.”

Next month, bosses will be­gin draw­ing up busi­ness plans for 2019, when the UK is due to leave the EU.

And they will have to work on the as­sump­tion there will be no deal un­less progress is made rapidly.

An open let­ter signed by bosses at 100 of Bri­tain’s big­gest firms says: “The risk of no deal re­mains real and has to be planned for, with in­evitable con­se­quences for jobs and growth.”

The busi­ness lead­ers want a three-year tran­si­tional ar­range­ment.
