Leader of the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable today met Japanese business leaders at Chatham House where he made clear “a People’s Vote with an option to remain is still very much a possibility.”
Following the meeting, Vince Cable said:
“Japanese investment is worth billions to the UK economy. I met many of these business leaders during my time as Business Secretary. I encouraged their investment in the UK creating many jobs, particularly in the car industry.
“It was always clear that they were investing in the UK because they view it as a gateway to the wider European market and the danger of Brexit is that they will no longer invest here.
I made clear that no deal is a choice by this Conservative Government. I also reassured them that a People’s Vote with an option to remain is still very much a possibility. Playing games in order to scare MPs is having a damaging effect on confidence but there is still time to stop Brexit.”
