Responding to the Prime Minister’s statement, Edwin Morgan, Interim Director General of the Institute of Directors, said:
“The Prime Minister’s statement was a welcome step towards compromise, but there are still many obstacles on the path ahead. There was a clear indication of how the Government sees the next steps unfolding but time is of the essence and the outcome of all this is still far from clear.
“The brinkmanship has gone on for far too long and business leaders want our politicians to put an end to this miserable uncertainty. We urge the Leader of the Opposition to work with the Prime Minister to find a solution. Both sides must play ball.”
