British Business On Brexit: What Companies Said

The FT asked every company in the FTSE 100 index and a range of trade representative groups for their wishlist for the outcome of the Brexit negotiations which kicked off between the EU and the UK in Brussels on Monday.

In general, companies both big and small wanted to retain as close a trading arrangement to the current situation as possible. They also wanted to be able to continue accessing skilled workers from the bloc.

Below is a selection of the most interesting responses to our questions.

What kind of immigration regime would you like the UK to adopt? Would an immigration cap of 100,000 be likely to affect your ability to staff your company adequately?

● “Caps are unhelpful. We want access to skills at all levels. The important thing for me is if access to overseas labour comes down, that it comes down slowly, so we can adjust to it. We would struggle to staff our London stores.” FTSE 100 retailer

● “Yes, it would. The prime minister has ruled out a points-based system so a form of employer-led work permit system for skilled labour would be preferable.” WPP, FTSE 100

● “Currently the talk is all about exemptions for astrophysicists, doctors and engineers. However without chefs, cleaners and front of house staff, the hospitality industry will equally grind to a halt.” Merlin Entertainment, FTSE 100
