British Trade Body Urges MPs to Set Aside Political Difference and Work Towards a Pro-Business Brexit

The Federation of Small Business (FSB) has urged Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt to avoid the possibility of a no-deal Brexit and work towards a Brexit that would be pro-business. With the Pound falling to a 27-month low against the dollar, the hard Brexit sentiment is weighing on the economy and UK’s businesses.
According to Chair of the FSB, Mike Cherry, MPs across parties must come together and work towards a Brexit deal to avoid Britain gambling away its reputation, something that is a certainty in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
At the FSB’s annual reception slated to be held later today, Cherry plans on urging MPs to break the political deadlock that caused Theresa May to resign from her post as PM. In his speech while addressing the gathering at the event, Cherry also plans to discuss key business priorities that have been overlooked due to the looming uncertainties surrounding Brexit.
