Judith Hackitt, the Head of Make UK, the country’s main manufacturing association, issued a strong warning of 'catastrophic' no-deal Brexit, blaming the selfishness of some politicians and chaotic parliamentary proceedings.
“Let me be clear ... for those hard Brexiteers who accuse us of scaremongering. This is very real and very serious.”
“Some of our politicians have put selfish political ideology ahead of the national interest and people’s livelihoods and left us facing the catastrophic prospect of leaving the EU next month with no deal.”
Some 49 percent of 429 manufacturers surveyed for Make UK said a no-deal Brexit would make Britain unattractive, compared with 28 percent who said Britain would still be an attractive location, with bigger companies more likely to express concerns.
