Brexit Topic Guide

Atglance.jpg

In February 2017, BSRIA launched an at-a-glance guide to Brexit, to cut through some of the confusion surrounding Britain’s departure from the European Union.

The guide includes facts on a range of key issues:

  • The impact of Brexit on the construction industry.
  • The impact on skills and training.
  • Labour and trade figures.
  • A definition of Article 50 and the key issues arising from it.
  • Political and global views of Brexit.
  • Why the High Court ruled in favour of parliament.
  • FAQ's.
  • How the government will carry out Brexit.
  • The terms of the Brexit negotiation.
  • What happens to EU legislation?

Jayne Sunley, BSRIA Information Manager, said:

“There has been much heat and noise surrounding Brexit since June last year. On behalf of our members, we have created this easy to use at a glance guide which covers a multitude of Brexit questions.

From the free movement of EU nationals, visa applications, the impact on skills and training and the Supreme Court ruling to a Brexit FAQ, the role of the Department for Exiting the EU, the Canada, Norway and Swiss Model and what happens to EU legislation?

Whether the UK adopts a hard, soft or medium, black, white or grey Brexit remains to be seen but, for now, BSRIA is calling for a clear Brexit agenda, and in essence, government must provide a clear avenue for industry.

Finally, we must not lose sight of the fact that it is crucial that the construction industry’s voice is heard in the Brexit debate.”
