Norwich businesses’ views on Brexit will be reported to the secretary of state for exiting the EU after a series of roundtable discussions.

Norwich North MP Chloe Smith has spoken to leaders in the science, digital and retail sectors to better understand how Brexit might impact jobs and the economy in the city.

She said feedback had included the need for certainty as early as possible in the Brexit process on key areas including freedom of movement, trade and import costs and taxation.

Ms Smith said: “I have listened to [Norwich businesses’] concerns and will take these matters back to Parliament.

“Leaving the EU could have a variety of impacts on the city’s key sectors, and this matters to most people in the city one way or another.

“I want to see a Brexit deal that makes our economy even stronger, makes it easy for businesses to create jobs in our city, and helps people to prosper in their daily lives.”
