Ross McNally, Executive Chairman of Hampshire Chamber of Commerce, said:
“Wherever they stand on Brexit, our members have continually told us that they want to see certainty in the future trading partnership between the UK and the EU.  
“It has been a rocky road up to now, with years of negotiations and the previous agreement failing to secure parliamentary support.

“We of course welcome today’s announcement of a proposed new agreement but given that we have been here before, the fear is that a similar scenario will play out and further uncertainty will prevail.

“We call on politicians to recognise the implications for businesses in Hampshire and across the UK if the current Brexit impasse continues.

“Businesses desperately need and deserve a clear model of what working political relationship is going to emerge so they can get back to planning and investing with confidence.

“Until we know the finer detail and what support parliament will ultimately give, our message to businesses is to continue being pragmatic and make contingency plans for all possible Brexit scenarios.

“Comprehensive support is available through Hampshire Chamber in the meantime including our free-of-charge Brexit bootcamps.
