FDF response to the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester

Ian Wright CBE, FDF Director General, said:
“With party conference now over, the Government needs to redouble its efforts in order to secure the best possible Brexit deal for the country.

“The clock is ticking ever louder; the food and drink industry, the UK’s largest manufacturing sector, needs a transition period that provides continued access to our valued EU workforce, a stable regulatory regime, frictionless customs and trade, and a practical solution to Irish border issues. It is imperative that we see concrete progress during the next round of negotiations.”
