Retail, Food, and Hospitality Brexit round-up 10 February

11 February 2019
Developments this week include: No.10 have published a transcript of a meeting held on 7th February to explore ways forward on the legal backstop re the Irish border. 

Key take away this week

As always, we will track the important updates for you while the countdown continues.
