SMMT statement on no-deal vote

14 March 2019 #Europe #SMMT News

Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive:

Parliament’s clear rejection of no-deal is welcome, but the law still requires the UK to leave the EU in 15 days, with or without a deal. To avoid irreparable damage to the UK automotive industry, politicians must come together to find the legal means to take no-deal off the table for good. Any extension of Article 50 must be purposeful and long enough to give business stability and Parliament time to reach consensus to end the deadlock.
