TheCityUK responds to Chequers statement

The Cabinet has agreed a 'collective' stance on future EU deal.

Following details of the Cabinet's agreed Brexit plans from Chequers, Miles Celic, Chief Executive Office, TheCityUK, said,

It is helpful that the U.K. government has set out further thinking on its Brexit proposals. It is particularly reassuring that the importance of services has again been recognised. We now await further detail in the forthcoming White Paper, not least around the issues vital to our ecosystem: regulation and mutual access to talent.

“In the meantime, we hope that the EU will respond to these proposals in a constructive and considered manner. Both sides must now seize this opportunity to put the interest of citizens and customers across Europe firmly at the heart of the process.”
