NI Chamber responds to announcement that Prime Minister will step down
Responding to the announcement that Theresa May will step down as Prime Minister, Ann McGregor, Chief Executive of Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NI Chamber), said:
“We wish the Prime Minister well and thank her for her decades of public service, particularly her recent visits to Northern Ireland in an attempt to progress the Withdrawal Agreement.
“Any leadership contest must be swift and followed urgently by a clear plan to break the impasse. Westminster has already squandered far too much time going around in circles on Brexit.
“Regardless of who is in Downing Street, a new Prime Minister must work to avert a messy and disorderly exit from the EU and provide firms with stability and answers. They will expect practical solutions to a number of issues that are still unclear ranging from trade agreements, migration rules and customs.”
