Cable: Low manufacturing growth speaks volumes about Brexit uncertainty
Responding to the news that UK manufacturing growth has hit a two year low, Liberal Democrat Leader and former Business Secretary Vince Cable said:
“The world economy is booming. It should be a good time for UK manufacturing, particularly with a weaker pound. The fact it isn’t speaks volumes about the uncertainty being created by the Conservative Government’s incompetent handling of Brexit.
“Both the hard Brexiters – represented by Boris Johnson – and the EU have rejected the Prime Minister’s discredited Chequers compromise. It is clear the only way out of this mess is for the people to have the final say on Brexit, and an opportunity to remain in the EU.”
