          Retail, Food, and Hospitality Brexit round-up 17 March

          We know that Brexit is one of the key issues you need to keep abreast of in order to plan for the future of your businesses. This dedicated weekly update will help you stay ahead.

          Key take away this week

          As we lurch towards 29 March, more votes are promised, more than 1m people have signed a petition for no Brexit and the PM is busily trying to get some sort of extension from the EU. 

           

          Everyone said that it would take until the 11th hour to be sorted, but I don't think that anyone expected this.  To say that it is not quite going to plan is an understatement of epic proportions.  With a week to go, much legislation remains in draft format, there is no clarity and no political direction.   It is going to be an interesting and historic few days.
