IoD responds to the Prime Minister's statement

24 May 2019

Responding to Theresa May’s speech announcing her departure as Prime Minister, Edwin Morgan, Interim Director General of the Institute of Directors, said:

“To borrow a phrase, nothing has changed, or at least, very little has. A new leader will be faced with the same political challenges and the same economic realities.

“No deal remains a significant, and growing, concern for businesses, and that cannot be wished away, whoever is in power. When companies and the country need serious, considered decision-making, we have pantomime instead.

“We would ask for politicians to swiftly come to a solution which provides for as smooth an exit as possible, but that feels like a vain hope at the moment.”
