Energy UK responds to Parliament's rejection of PM's Brexit deal
Responding to Parliament’s rejection of PM’s Brexit deal, Lawrence Slade chief executive of Energy UK, said:
“Tonight’s vote means continued uncertainty for business. As the Parliamentary discussions continue, we reiterate our serious concerns over a possible no-deal Brexit which would be so damaging for the energy sector and its customers.
"It is critical we ensure the smooth functioning of markets, and the efficient flow of gas and electricity and cooperation on tacking climate change, in order to keep bills down for UK customers and businesses without compromising on protecting our environment. We will continue to work with the Government to ensure the best Brexit deal for the energy sector, its customers and the wider economy.
