The risk of a no-deal Brexit is turning into a “full-blown economic crisis”, the aerospace trade body has warned.
ADS Group said it was now able to track “the very real economic damage being caused” by the continuing uncertainty over the UK’s exit from the EU.
Its warning comes as insurance trade body, the ABI, said a no-deal Brexit “would be a be an unforgivable act of economic and social self-harm”.
The UK is due to leave the EU on 29 March, but no deal is yet in place.
Prime Minister Theresa May is facing growing pressure to delay Brexit if no deal is agreed by then.
ADS, the aerospace and defence trade group, represents some of the largest companies operating in the UK, including Airbus, Boeing and BAE Systems.
Chief executive Paul Everitt said its members needed a “firm transition period and negotiations on the UK’s future relationship with the European Union commenced at the earliest opportunity”.
His comments come amid growing anger among many business groups over the continuing uncertainty.
