FDF has issued the following press notice:

Commenting on the statement by the Prime Minister this evening, Ian Wright CBE, Chief Executive of the Food and Drink Federation said:

“Livelihoods are at stake, jobs are on the line. Food and drink manufacturers are spending money, time and effort trying to plan under a cloud of perpetual uncertainty. A further extension to article 50 must be sufficient to allow for a new plan to emerge. Unless the Prime Minister can secure the speedy support of the leader of the opposition, another short extension would only prolong the misery for businesses and the country.”
