PM must bring back a deal that protects jobs and livelihoods

Responding to the news the government has ended talks with the EU, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said: “Last December the Prime Minister told voters he had an oven ready deal with the EU. Just ten months later he tells us he has finished the talks without a deal.

“We are now on the cusp of a bad trade deal or no trade deal – either of which will hit jobs and businesses hard, just when Britain is already suffering from the biggest economic crisis for three hundred years. 

“The Prime Minister must get back around the table and bring back a deal that protects jobs and livelihoods, already hit by the coronavirus crisis. To do otherwise would be a dereliction of his duty as Prime Minister.
