This week’s votes could put the end to the crippling uncertainty that is harming the UKs economy and reputation as a place to invest. It is vital that parliamentarians show the country compromise is possible and coalesce around a deal that can carry a majority in the House of Commons, is feasibly negotiable in Brussels, and works for jobs in communities across the UK.
Local employers will be watching the results of indicative votes closely. Compromise is crucial to avoid a deeply damaging no deal that would harm every sector, region and nation. And it is critical that Government takes the consensus view of parliament seriously and acts upon it.
