Bracknell MP holds Brexit talks
Posted: Jul 23, 2016
Bracknell’s MP, Dr Phillip Lee, has been meeting with local businesses over the past three weeks to discuss with them the ramifications of Britain’s exit from the EU. The area is the home to almost 30 corporate headquarters, meaning that the decision to leave will affect many of the constituency’s biggest employers.
Speaking about his findings, Dr Lee said:
“It is clear from my discussions that the Brexit vote on 23rd June has created a lot of uncertainty, both here and in the markets across the world. Virtually every company I have spoken with has been impacted at some level, either of from a drop in the exchange rate, contracts put on hold, or problems with overseas staff due to concerns over their future status.
“This last aspect is of particular importance as many companies rely on being able to bring in the best and brightest staff from their other European offices to work in this country.
“That said, the companies have suggested a number of innovative and practical suggestions as to how the British government can help to mitigate these impacts and I will be putting these before the newly appointed ministers handling our negotiations over the course of the next few weeks.”
