Pro-Brexit Business Leaders Seek EU Firms' Support On Trade

by Jason Gorringe,, London

05 January 2017

A pro-Brexit consortium of business leaders has written to EU chambers of commerce to seek support in lobbying EU governments to support the conclusion of a generous free trade agreement for the UK.

According to the BBC, Leave Means Leave has asked business groups in EU nations to demand a "sensible agreement regarding the terms of Britain's exit from the EU." The group said that business leaders in other EU states had aired concerns also that tariffs on trade to and from the UK would be detrimental to all.

The group is calling for a "hard" Brexit wherein the UK would relinquish all terms (and benefits) of EU membership, including free movement of persons and free movement of goods and services.
