Hospitality Ulster reacts to new Brexit withdrawal deal

17 October 2019

Reacting to the emerging news that a withdrawal deal has been struck between the UK and the EU, Colin Neill, Chief Executive, Hospitality Ulster said today:

“Our members have consistently stated that we need the best deal possible and that we should not exit the EU until a deal is agreed. Whilst the full details of today’s deal are still being considered, we recognise that the future economic relationship with the EU will be largely settled during the forthcoming transition period. We therefore give a cautious welcome to what has been agreed today.”

 

“We must now move on to the next stage and secure an extensive free trade deal with the EU to protect our wider domestic economy, so that we can refocus on the challenges facing our hospitality sector such as rates, VAT and access to labour post Brexit.”
