Continued single market access vital to UK businesses and the economy, says IPSE
The Association of Independent Professionals and the Self Employed, IPSE, has reacted to the publication today of the Scottish Government's proposals for life after Brexit.
IPSE Director of Policy and External Affairs, Simon McVicker, commented: "We agree with the Scottish Government that maintaining access to the single market is in the UK's best interest.
"Our six point plan to make Brexit work, published in July this year, highlighted that continued access to the single market should be Britain's main priority. It is vital that the UK's 4.8 million self-employed people can continue to work in the EU and in turn, the UK can benefit from EU skilled citizens.
"Our negotiators must respect the political and business interests from across the UK. For this to work, we need a Brexit that will work for all of Britain."
