MPs to quiz business on the impact of a vote to quit the EU

EU Flag - How Industries dependant on the EU would fare if Britain left the union - SantanderCB

MPs are today expected to announce an investigation into the possible impact of Brexit on UK business, with the construction and pharmaceuticals sectors a particular focus of attention. Sources close to the Commons Business Select Committee say the inquiry will run for between two and four hearings, with senior City figures and representatives of business organisations due to appear. While leading bodies such as the CBI, Federation of Small Businesses and British Chambers of Commerce will be invited to participate, MPs are also keen for a 'wider spectrum' of witnesses, so they can make a more detailed assessment of how industries dependent on the EU would fare if Britain left the union.
