Chancellor must take blinkers off and pay attention to industry

Responding to the Chancellor’s comments today, warning manufacturers that “there will not be alignment” with the EU after Brexit, Acting leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said: “Major industries across the country have time and again made clear that pan-European regulatory alignment has been a success in supporting the creation and retention of millions of jobs.

“To risk all that in favour of narrow, ideological ends is a real slap in the face. It is the height of irresponsibility for which the British public will be forced to pay.

“Liberal Democrats will continue to oppose Brexit and hold this shambles of a Government to account. The Chancellor must take the blinkers off and pay attention to industry.”
