FDF Director General Ian Wright CBE said:

“It is great news that the European Council has agreed to progress talks to phase 2. We welcome the immense efforts of both sides. But there is a mountain of work ahead. While our valued EU workers have some comfort for Christmas over their future status, we want to see a binding guarantee and for Government to deliver on their promise to create a simple online registration system.

“Also on FDF's wishlist to Father Christmas is speedy agreement of a status quo transition period, a special solution for Ireland, and securing a comprehensive trade deal with the EU which protects all the benefits and ease of trading we currently enjoy.”
