MAG statement on the UK exiting the European Union

Charlie Cornish, CEO, MAG, said:

“It is clear that a ‘no deal’ outcome would be hugely damaging for British people and businesses, and that prolonged uncertainty on this issue will ultimately undermine consumer confidence.

“In the case of aviation, leaving with ‘no deal’ could also lead to a binding cap on the number of flights to the EU.

“We urgently need clarity from Government on these issues.

“That is why Government should rule out the possibility of the UK leaving the EU without a deal, and agree an extension to the Article 50 timetable to provide the time needed to find an orderly and managed way forward.”
