ACE RESPONDS TO THE EU WITHDRAWAL AGREEMENT

Hannah Vickers on the Prime Minister's Brexit proposal

Commenting on the withdrawal agreement put forward by Theresa May this week, chief executive of the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) said:

“This agreement makes progress on some of the key issues for our members. It ensures a mutual recognition of skills, citizen's rights, employment rights and standards. By delivering a transition period, it also ensures there is no “cliff-edge” which will be welcome news for all businesses no matter the sector they work in.

"While more clarity is, of course, needed on a final relationship, and it needs to survive ministerial resignations while making its way through the parliamentary process, this proposed deal should be welcomed as an important step-forward.”
