Chairman, Chris Oglesby, responds to Theresa May Brexit speech


Reaction to Theresa May's Brexit Speech 

Chris Oglesby, Bruntwood chief executive and MSP chairman said: “While many uncertainties remain, it is at least something of a positive that we now have some degree of clarity over the Government’s stance on Brexit''.

''The Government has a huge responsibility to deliver a good deal for British businesses outside the single market and I expect the negotiations to be tough in the extreme''

“Our greatest concern remains over the continued free movement of people, which we know is integral to scientific and technological collaboration and the flow of ideas.  The Government therefore must listen to the business community on this question, or risk long term damage to both Britain’s international reputation in innovation and its economy.”
