The British Chamber of Commerce (BCC), the UK business trade body, said that without greater clarity over import and export duties, border controls and customs procedures, Theresa May risked thousands of companies suffering a potentially catastrophic shock when the UK quits the European Union. Adam Marshall, the BCC’s director general, said British firms could face the biggest change to their terms of trade in over a generation in less than 50 days, “without the information and clarity they need to navigate their forward course”. The warning came only a fortnight after the BCC said thousands of firms were planning to relocate inside the remaining 27 EU nations to avoid potential hiccups at the border and maintain consistent relationships with customers and suppliers. Referring to the number of businesses that have publicly … [Read more...] about Business leaders demand May answers 20 questions on trade

Doug Prentice started refereeing in the public parks of Edinburgh in 1977 and had seven seasons on the Scottish senior list from 1986 until 1992. His family is steeped in football. His father John played for Hearts and Rangers, among others, and was the Scotland manager in 1966 when they drew 1-1 with Brazil – Pelé and all.
