EURIS reiterates call for extension to Article 50


The EURIS Taskforce, a body of trade organisations representing UK manufacturing worth £148 billion in turnover, is reiterating its call for an extension to Article 50 following the result of last night’s Brexit vote.

Dr Howard Porter, EURIS Chair said: “Following the vote to reject the EU Withdrawal Agreement, EURIS reiterates our call that in order to facilitate any of the viable political options which avoid a No-Deal Brexit, the UK Government should request an extension to Article 50”.
