Kyle Taylor, Director of Smart Brexit, responds to todays manufacturing and investment figures

Responding to today’s figures on manufacturing sales and investment in the UK by companies, pension funds and trusts, Kyle Taylor, Director of Smart Brexit said:

“Both sets of statistics show that we need certainty from the government in what it wants to achieve from its Brexit plan. With manufacturing sales down for the first time since the 2008 financial crisis and investment in the UK slowing the government’s plan in February must outline what it is they want to achieve. Brexit can be a success but to get the best from it the government must fight to secure people’s jobs and livelihoods, fully-fund the NHS and create a fair immigration system that benefits our country. “
