Retail NI Comments on Brexit Extension

Commenting on the six month extension to Brexit, Retail NI Chief Executive

Glyn Roberts said:

“There will be relief right across the local business community that we are not crashing out of the EU this week. It would have been a complete disaster for our economy”

“Retail NI is very clear that we need to see a deal and this postponement gives the Government and the Labour Party more time to reach an agreement ”

“If no withdrawal deal is agreed, revoking Article 50 should be considered, as opposed to the nightmare scenario of leaving with no deal”
