CBI Responds To Vote On Article 50
Josh Hardie
MPs have backed the government's motion to seek to extend Article 50 and delay Brexit beyond 29 March by 412 votes to 202 - a majority of 210.

Josh Hardie, CBI Deputy Director-General, said:

“After an exasperating few days, Parliament’s rejection of no deal and desire for an extension shows there is still some common sense in Westminster.

“But without a radically new approach, business fears this is simply a stay of execution.

“MPs have an urgent duty to put in place a process that can determine what deal Parliament does want.

“Both main parties must make meaningful moves to find consensus, not simply double-down on their red lines or put hopes of power ahead of the country.

“Any politician whose plan is simply to stick to their vision of Brexit shares responsibility for this self-inflicted impasse, with the country grinding to a halt.

“Now is the time for those who champion leadership through compromise to show courage.”
