I was a guest on the BBC’s East Midlands Sunday Politics on 15 July. On the show, I discussed how important it is for businesses in our region to get greater certainty over Brexit. East Midlands businesses have said the Government’s Chequers Brexit plan isn’t good enough because it lacks answers on crucial areas like VAT, the movement of staff and future controls over goods at borders. Food manufacturers that I’ve spoken to in Leicester need to know how they will import and export products in the future if they are going to continue to expand.
