Retail, Food & Hospitality Brexit round-up 28 October

02 November 2018
Brexit Flags
We know that Brexit is one of the key issues you need to keep abreast of in order to plan for the future of your businesses. We have started this dedicated weekly update to help you stay ahead. 

Key take away this week

This week we have seen yet more Brexit turmoil.  With the release of the Fisheries Bill we have one more piece of legislation needed for the post-Brexit framework starting to make its way through Parliament.  Sadly, this is only the fourth of at least seven significant pieces of legislation necessary to set the framework for our future.  

With less than six months to go, time is getting tight to get things completed in time.  Whatever gets agreed politically, it looks like a tsunami of legislation will soon be upon us.
