Forecasts 'Paint A Bleak Picture' Of A No Deal Brexit
Business responds to the UK Government's economic impact assessments on Brexit.

Commenting on the release of these statistics, Rain Newton-Smith, CBI Chief Economist, said:

“These forecasts paint a bleak picture over the long-term of a no deal Brexit or a Canada-style deal. It surely puts to bed some of the more far-fetched ideas that a hard landing Brexit will not seriously hurt the economy.

“This is about real people’s lives and jobs in the years ahead and it’s clear to business that while the Government’s deal is not perfect, it certainly fits the bill in reducing short-term uncertainty and opens up a route to a decent trade deal in the future.

“Politicians of all parties should speak to businesses in their constituency to hear about the impact a bad Brexit will have on them and their workforce. And the longer a ‘no deal’ scenario remains possible, the more corrosive the impact on jobs and investment plans.”
