BBPA reacts to Queen’s Speech


Following the Queen’s Speech this morning, the British Beer & Pub Association’s Chief Executive, comments:

“It is clear that this session of Parliament will be dominated by Brexit, with limited room for other legislation. I am pleased that the speech specifically mentioned the importance of working closely with business, and support for exports and skills.

“As the Brexit bills proceed, we will certainly be making clear our priorities; robust transitional arrangements, trading as freely as possible with frictionless customs arrangements, and future access to the skills we need with the rights of our existing employees swiftly safeguarded.

“We will of course continue to campaign for our other key priorities, not least a more competitive tax regime for the future.”
