BSRIA chief responds to Prime Minister’s Brexit speech

BSRIA has issued a response to Prime Minister Theresa May’s speech on Brexit yesterday (17th January).

BSRIA has issued a response to Prime Minister Theresa May’s speech on Brexit yesterday (17th January).

Chief executive Julia Evans said: “Today the Prime Minister, Theresa May, altered the political and economic landscape. It is fair to say that BSRIA members and the industry at large will welcome the greater clarity and the aspiration to create a more affluent, flourishing, open and global Britain, with the freest possible trade between the UK and the EU. Indeed, May said Britain wants to trade with the EU ‘as freely as possible’ but will not be ‘half-in, half-out’.”

Ms Evans continued: “But ruling out membership of the Single Market has reduced opportunities for continuing a barrier-free trading relationship between the UK and the EU. Therefore, government must now deliver these aims and achieve a smooth and systematic exit.

“As previously stated – Brexit must not become all-consuming, and we must ensure that industry has employees with the right skills to be able to create the right infrastructure and business environment across the UK.”

Ms Evans added: “On immigration, May said the government would seek to guarantee the rights of EU citizens living and working in Britain.

“However, if citizens of the EU-27 are subject to future restrictions, a straightforward and light-touch system is crucial. Bringing EU nationals into the costly and bureaucratic Home Office work permit system can be an immense regulatory burden for many members, especially when their immediate skills shortages continue to be critical,” she concluded.
