FDF has issued the following press notice:

Speaking in response to tonight's votes in the House of Commons, FDF Chief Executive Officer Ian Wright CBE said:

“Tonight's failure to reach a majority for one or more options in Parliament shatters hopes of progress. Business confidence in the political leadership is in real danger of running out. With no apparent Parliamentary majority for any potential way forward, and a no-deal crisis on April 12 2019 looming, the only common sense approach left is for the UK to request a sufficient extension to article 50 to allow a complete re-think and a different kind of consensus to emerge.”
