The newly appointed Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has emphasised that no-deal remains an option for the UK in order to exit the EU by 31st October this year. Leaving then is the public commitment made by Mr Johnson.
Matters remain highly fluid and HAE has relied on published news and government sources for this information briefing. New announcements and negotiating stances appear almost daily but we have attempted a summary of the current position, focused on preparations for no deal and some assessment of what might happen next.
If you have specific concerns about the hire sector’s ability to prepare for no deal or Brexit generally, then please contact us. We will take up these issues with the relevant government departments and agencies. There has been recent coverage in the media with hire businesses shown as examples of how companies are facing practical issues stockpiling spare parts and preparing in the current uncertainty.
