Allie Renison, Head of Europe and Trade Policy at the IoD, writing in her blog:
We are hoping and expecting to see more position papers in the autumn from the UK Government in this area, as well as on the Irish border and future framework for regulating cross-border trade in goods and services. Work will also soon begin on a number of Brexit-related legislative bills – including on immigration and trade policy. The latter of these is expected to equip our own government machinery with the necessary tools to eventually take over functions from Brussels – even if they create no active break with EU policy in this area.
This yet another note of concern from the IoD.
We all hope for a smooth transition, but I personally think the entire process to be an unnecessary waste of time and money that could be better spent in any area of our economy.
