Kristian Rouz — The key British lobbying group representing the nation's industries is set to call on the Tory and Unionist cabinet to make every effort to remain in the EU customs union. The group alleges that unrestricted access to the continental market, coupled with broader overseas opportunities, could maximize the UK's gain from Brexit.
Director General for the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) Carolyn Fairbairn is slated to deliver a major speech on Monday. She will reportedly call on the cabinet to maintain the UK's status as part of the single European market, which, on the one hand, is, "consistent" with the Brexit agenda, and, on the other hand, "good for EU firms" as well.
