Domino's Pizza, Pret A Manger among signatories in open letter against 'costly, bureaucratic' Brexit

The letter was in response to Prime Minister Theresa May's customs proposal.

Over 100 business leaders and entrepreneurs slammed the "cost, complexity and bureaucracy" proposed in Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit blueprint and demanded an even softer exit from the single market.

As reported by The Daily Mail, a open letter to May was released by the group that includes the founders of Innocent Drinks, Pret a Manger and Domino's.

The firms claim that May’s customs proposal would be disadvantageous for UK firms and called for MPs to back amendments to the government’s trade and customs bills that would secure full customs union membership when the legislation is considered in parliament.

A portion of the letter states: "The cost, complexity and bureaucracy created by crashing out of the customs union and adopting alternative arrangements is the last thing that our businesses need as we seek to grow and employ more people. It would amount to the British government tying the hands of British business."
