Responding to the vote today in the House of Commons, Edwin Morgan, Interim Director General of the Institute of Directors, said:
“So the Brexit merry-go-round continues to spin, but the fun stopped a long time ago. We are running out of words to express how sick business leaders are of being stuck in this spirit-sapping limbo. The inability to make any decision is doing lasting damage to enterprise.
“The Commons must come together around a realistic option on Monday. Meanwhile, as the ones who are actually negotiating with the EU, the Government must be ready to make clear its own preferred route forward. It can’t entirely absent itself from this process, even if Parliament is crucial for the next steps.”
