Last month, I visited the Black Country Chamber of Commerce.
It was good to hear from the Black Country Chamber about the work they are doing to prepare local businesses for Brexit.
This is a very uncertain time for businesses and companies want clarity on what the rules will be for future exports to the EU and imports from the EU. Many of our supply chains locally are highly integrated and any disruption, delay or extra paperwork could have an adverse impact on local companies.
The more information we can give companies the better but the real answer is clarity about the future trading arrangements and at the moment, the Government simply can’t give businesses that clarity.
