Commenting on the appointment of Boris Johnson as Prime Minister, ADS Chief Executive Paul Everitt said:

“We welcome the appointment of the new Prime Minister and look forward to working with him and his Cabinet.

 “The threat of a No Deal Brexit on October 31 is creating uncertainty for industry that is holding back growth and constraining investment.

“Businesses are looking to the Government to act quickly to find a pragmatic way forward on Brexit that puts jobs, investment and prosperity first. Our sectors have already spent hundreds of millions of pounds preparing for a potential No Deal Brexit, which remains the worst possible outcome for our economy.

 “The successful industrial partnership between industry and Government is a vital part of the UK’s policy armoury and will help overcome the challenges of Brexit by supporting cutting edge innovation and productivity improvements. I hope the new administration will act to strengthen this partnership and help secure jobs and growth.”
