LCCI react to the Prime Minister’s resignation

Friday 24 May 2019

David Frost, Chief Executive of London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said:

"The Prime Minister's departure was an unavoidable necessity for moving beyond the country's political log-jam.

We hope that a new leader can find a constructive way forward to break the impasse in Parliament and deliver certainty about the UK’s terms of exit from the EU.

Exit on WTO terms is still a very real possibility on 31 October and whether or not it happens is not entirely in UK hands. The Government must ensure it and business are well prepared for this situation and we remain ready to work with them on this.”
