A survey released today by the Institute of Directors which shows that the EU has seen stronger growth as a market for UK exporters than either Asia or North America over the past two years. Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake, said:
“At some point the government will have to stop ignoring the warning signs about their policy to tear us out of the European Union. This work done by the Institute of Directors shows how important the single market and the customs union are to our businesses and our economy.
“Yesterday the Prime Minister once again dodged the question about whether she believes Britain will be better off after leaving the EU. Instead of dodging the question May should listen to the Institute of Directors, and dodge the cliff edge by protecting businesses and maintaining unfettered access to the world’s largest market, and the public who want a Vote on the Deal.”
