Commenting on the draft Withdrawal Agreement, Jasmine Whitbread, Chief Executive of London First, said:
“Business can get behind this pragmatic agreement.
“The Prime Minister has avoided a cliff-edge, which would be disastrous for jobs and growth, and laid the groundwork for a final deal.
“We’ve been clear that the best deal for the country and citizens is one that retains the benefits of the customs union, safeguards our service sector and keeps us open to the talent and skills our economy needs.
“The next few weeks will be critical however, and with so much at stake for our country, we need cool heads and leadership.”
