techUK comments on last night's Brexit Indicative Votes

Commenting on last night’s indicative votes, Julian David, techUK’s CEO, said:

“The political chaos of Brexit has delayed both Parliament and businesses for too long. Despite proposals for a Customs Union and for the Single Market coming very close to securing a majority, Parliament remains deadlocked. This continued failure to agree a path through the current political impasse is already seriously damaging investor confidence and undermining those businesses who want to get on with growing the UK’s digital economy.

“Businesses do not want to see the further uncertainty of a General Election. Instead we need Parliament to put aside partisan interests and secure an agreement that gets us out of the current quagmire. If this requires a new approach, such as a referendum, or MPs to be given a straight choice between different options then this should be explored urgently.

“Whatever MPs’ different preferences, for businesses the most important thing is avoiding a No Deal Brexit on 12 April. techUK members have been very clear that a No Deal Brexit is simply unacceptable if the UK wishes continue to be a leader in the global digital economy.”
