BSRIA is urging clarity on Brexit following the recent High Court ruling that Article 50 cannot be triggered without a vote in Parliament.
The Government has said it will appeal at the Supreme Court and is still committed to generating Article 50 by March next year.
The EU’s other 27 members have said that negotiations about the terms of the UK’s exit – due to last two years – cannot begin until Article 50 has been invoked.
BSRIA chief executive Julia Evans (pictured right) said: “Back on Thursday 23rd June, the country voted and the decision was ‘out’. Today’s High Court ruling now adds a high level of uncertainty and ambiguity into the Brexit proceedings. What industry needs is clear leadership to bring economic confidence and stability forthwith as a plan of action.”
She continued: “We do not want months and months of parliamentary obstacles ahead. BSRIA is calling for a clear Brexit timetable not layers of legal hurdles. Much economic indecision had already been evident in the build up to the referendum which was detrimental to our industry. We do not need more.”
