Project Fear no doubt… this time from the UK Aerospace Industry… won’t these Remoaners ever learn that they need to just shut up and close down their UK operations?
There is growing concern among key aerospace manufacturers about regulatory alignment and the ability to bring products to market after Brexit.
The firms have sought reassurance that the UK would continue to be a member of the European Aviation Safety Agency after any Brexit deal.
They also warned that alignment with chemicals regulations is “vital” for the sector.
The government said it would pursue agreements where necessary.
The government is facing a backlash from key manufacturers amid growing industrial concern that Boris Johnson’s Brexit negotiators have dropped existing commitments to participate in specific EU regulatory institutions after any Brexit deal.
BBC News has obtained a letter from the aerospace industry body, the ADS, to the government asking for “reassurance” that “continued membership of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and alignment with EU chemicals regulations” which “are vital for our sector”.
It said that “we received assurances from the previous [May] government that the UK would seek to continue membership of or retain participation and influence in EU agencies such as EASA”.
The letter, dated this week, and sent to Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove and Brexit secretary Stephen Barclay, expresses “concern” that the PM has signalled a different approach.
Repeated attempts to get clarity on this issue have not reassured the aerospace and other industries on this topic.
It says that “regulatory divergence would pose a serious risk to our sectors” will result in “huge new costs and disruptions to many of our member companies”, and an “inability to shape safety rule
making” which “will make it much more difficult to bring UK technology to market”.
Then… the source is the BBC… so it’s probably all made up… you know how the BBC is pro-Remain, probably fake news.
