con­cerned by the Brexit process and that sup­port is grow­ing for a Peo­ple’s Vote on the fi­nal deal.

“Re­tail­ers are wor­ried about get­ting stock from the con­ti­nent, car mak­ers about de­lays at the bor­der bring­ing their pro­duc­tion lines to a grind­ing halt and ev­ery­one from ho­tel and leisure to the food in­dus­try is wor­ried about how they are go­ing to find staff.”

The sur­vey find­ings co­in­cide with new eco­nomic fore­casts from the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion (EC) show­ing the UK lag­ging be­hind EU neigh­bours.

The EC warned that Bri­tain’s prospects could be even gloomier, as its fore­casts are based on the as­sump­tion of a “be­nign” re­sult to Brexit talks.
