Transition Period: Business

Volume 686: debated on Wednesday 16 December 2020

What steps the Government have taken to help ensure that businesses are prepared for the end of the transition period. (910392)

We are confident that the UK will prosper, whether on a Canada-style arrangement or Australia-style terms.

In the light of the new opportunities that the end of the transition period will bring, is the Prime Minister aware of the ambitious economic growth proposition developed in Buckinghamshire? Will he back this bold bid for Bucks to ensure that Buckinghamshire continues to increase its contribution to the Exchequer: a win for the businesses of Bucks and a win for the levelling-up agenda?

Yes, indeed. I know that Buckinghamshire Council is working closely with my hon. Friend and partners across the voluntary sector. We have been in initial discussions with Buckinghamshire about its proposals and are happy to taken them forward.
