  • TSC: Government assurances to firms

    17/11/2016
    TSC has published correspondence between it and Philip Hammond which asks for further information about the assurances offered by the Government... to Nissan. TSC comments “The position taken by the Chancellor before [TSC] that "we are not going to give a running commentary on how we will conduct the [Brexit] negotiation and what our priorities will be within it" sits oddly with the commitments – on tariffs and protection from bureaucracy - apparently made by the Business Secretary, first in private to Nissan, then later to the BBC, and, later still, to the House of Commons. A running commentary for a few firms, but not the rest of UK business, would be both unacceptable and counter-productive. The Government can and should set out its objectives for the negotiations, and sooner rather than later. By doing so it can allay concerns – fuelled by periodic leaks from Cabinet Committee”.
