Commenting on the current political landscape, Lesley Robinson, CEO at British Marine, said: “The upcoming General Election and subsequent Brexit extension means uncertainty will continue for both consumers and the industry, which is disappointing. We hope December’s Election will result in a majority Government that can deliver a Brexit solution, end the delays and instability we’re currently seeing and safeguard the future strength of the industry. 

“The Election will see new MPs in key constituencies, which provides a great opportunity to engage and raise the industry's profile and demonstrate the value of our sector within their regions.

“We will continue to monitor political developments closely and ensure members have all the relevant information they need to guide them and their businesses going forward. In the meantime, if members have any questions about how the General Election and subsequent Brexit extension will impact them, they should not hesitate to get in touch.”
