From the Daily Telegraph:

"Pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca has suspended investments in Britain due to the lack of clarity over the country’s departure from the European Union.

With less than six months to go, Leif Johansson, non-executive chairman, told France’s Le Monde newspaper precautions had to be taken.

“If a transition deal does not make clear what will happen in the future, we will maintain our decision not to invest,” Mr Johansson said.

“A Brexit agreement will need to ensure that Britain does not become an isolated island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.”
