FDF has issued the following press notice following tonight's votes in the House of Commons:

Ian Wright CBE, FDF Chief Executive said:

“MPs have taken a welcome first step towards resolving the Brexit deadlock. As long as Parliament refuses to approve the Prime Minister's deal, indicative votes represent the best way forward. A clear route to progress must now be quickly identified and actioned. Food and Drink manufacturers need to know they have not jumped from the frying pan of 29 March into the fire of 12 April.”
