Commenting on the confidence vote, Jasmine Whitbread, Chief Executive of London First, said:
“After last night’s vote, the priority must now be on plotting a course that avoids the UK crashing out of the EU with no deal, and finding a solution which can command a majority in Parliament.
“We’ve been clear all along that what’s best for economy and our future prosperity is a relationship with the EU that retains the benefits of the customs union, safeguards our service sector and keeps the UK open to the talent and skills we need.
“The Prime Minister and her Government need to get their act together quickly, so we don’t end up leaving the EU by default.”
