Responding to reports that the Government has drawn up plans to make companies change their packaging, advertising and products to replace the CE safety symbol in the event of a no-deal Brexit, Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake said:
“Brexit has lost the Conservatives the right to claim they are the party of business. If we needed more evidence they didn’t care, then here we are. It is within Theresa May’s power to take no deal off the table, she is simply using it as an option to frighten people into supporting her already defeated deal.
"However, Liberal Democrats are clear any Brexit will be damaging for business and result in a loss of jobs. The only way out of this mess is a people’s vote, with the option to remain in the EU.”
