Responding to the agreement on the extension of the Brexit process, Edwin Morgan, Interim Director General of the Institute of Directors, said:
“Confirmation of a further extension removes the immediate threat of no deal, but will bring little comfort for businesses when so much remains up in the air.
“Firms don’t want to see more of the same. They want to see politicians build consensus around a way forward that finally breaks the cycle of indecision.
“Westminster absolutely cannot feel the pressure is off now, quite the opposite, we need an increased sense of urgency towards finding a solution.”
