Statement on Brexit from Hospitality Ulster

16 November 2018

Colin Neill, Chief Executive, Hospitality Ulster said today:

“Our position has always been that a deal needs to be done, which meets the business needs of our industry. The current draft agreement appears to provide for unfettered access to goods and services plus visa access for visitors, which is welcome. However, our current advice would indicate that it may present barriers to cutting VAT and abolishing Air Passenger Duty (APD) in Northern Ireland and does not resolve our labour issues. As dialogue continues, we await further detail that will allow us to understand what the resulting implications on these issues are.”
