ADS: No deal Brexit remains worst outcome for business

Posted 23 August 2018 · Add Comment

Responding to the publication of the technical notices published by the Government today, the trade body representing the UK's aerospace, defence, security and space sectors, ADS, said a no deal Brexit would create inevitable disruption.

It stated that the technical notices provide further proof that leaving the European Union with no deal would be the worst outcome for businesses in the UK and Europe.

ADS Chief Executive Paul Everitt said: “The papers published today help provide more clarity over the consequences of leaving the EU with no deal, but demonstrate once again that it would be the worst possible outcome.

“Leaving without a deal would create substantial burdens on business, which would be forced to bear the costs of adapting to and overcoming the inevitable disruption.

“There is little time left to negotiate a good deal that provides the certainty and smooth transition that our industries need.

“It is vital that negotiators both in the UK and in Europe should put jobs and prosperity first to reach pragmatic solutions over important areas like aviation safety.”
