MANCHESTER, England, Oct 1 (Reuters) - Prime Minister Boris Johnson needs to make his priority getting a Brexit deal to protect the economy, rather than wooing voters with a political promises, business groups attending the Conservative Party conference said.
Less than a month until Britain is due to leave the European Union, Johnson’s Conservative Party conference in Manchester is festooned with a three word slogan that encapsulates his approach to leaving the European Union: “Get Brexit Done”.
He wants a deal with the European Union to smooth Britain’s exit from the bloc next month, but if he can’t get one in time he wants to leave on Oct. 31 anyway - a prospect that has the many in the business community on edge.
“The message from business to government is clear: get a Brexit deal done,” said Claire Walker, Co-Executive Director of the British Chambers of Commerce. (Reporting by William James; editing by Guy Faulconbridge)
