Forum of Private Business appeals to Government to remember Business Owners have Businesses to run amidst the Brexit chaos...

As the Government continues to insist we are leaving the EU on the 31st October with ‘No Deal’ as the most likely outcome it has announced a series of ‘No Deal Preparation Seminars ‘ to run in the coming 5 weeks across the country, as well as a variety of weekly updates and briefings for trade and support organisations.

In response, the Forum of Private Business has hit out at the Government for the unacceptable situation that they are putting businesses in, the confusion Forum of Private Business appeals to uk Government they are causing and the time they are making businesses waste, all in the cause of their political games. Last October, The Forum of Private Business gave the then UK Chancellor 5 out of 10 for the last pre-Brexit Budget!

Ian Cass, Chief Executive of the Forum, said:

“While we understand the need to prepare for the worst, it is unbelievable that the Government sees it as acceptable to encourage business owners to abandon their businesses and attend seminars to discuss the impact of a ‘No Deal Brexit’ when Parliament has made it abundantly clear that they will not tolerate a ‘No Deal’ and have ruled it out legally, alongside encouraging the Prime Minister to extend beyond the 31st October’.

The Forum emphasises, ‘If the Government was running balanced events sharing with businesses all the likely scenarios ‘Deal’, ‘No Deal’ and even ‘Article 50 withdrawal’ or ‘a new referendum’, with likely issues and timescales, that would be understandable,’ says Ian Cass, ‘but just focusing on a ‘No Deal’ exit with every indication that this will realistically not happen, and furthermore to encourage business owners to position their business strategies towards it, with the inherent costs and disruption, is irresponsible.”

“In the words of the Prime Minister himself,” comments Ian Cass, “ businesses have had a belly full of the continued uncertainty. They need direction, rather than being used as pawns in the Governments negotiation games.”
