BSRIA response to Brexit white paper
The important ones to industry are:
1. Providing certainty and clarity:
As the negotiations are approached.
2. Protecting workers’ rights.
Protecting and enhancing existing workers’ rights.
3. Ensuring free trade with European markets.
5. Delivering a smooth, orderly exit from the EU.
Julia Evans, BSRIA Chief Executive, said:
“BSRIA welcomes the additional facts included in this White Paper focussing on some of members’ and industry’s concerns. It is crucial that industry’s voice is heard loud and clear in the corridors of power – both in the UK and across Europe.
The week before last, BSRIA commented on the ‘Brexit’ Supreme Court judgement calling for clarity and a clear Brexit timetable without months and months of parliamentary obstacles. A smooth and neat exit is crucial.
Industry faces skills and labour shortages, therefore, members and industry will welcome the particular reference that the White Paper makes to science and innovation and the UK being a country that looks to the future. Strength in science is the way forward, along with that of innovation – which will help achieve the ambition of industry.
