Conservative Party Conference 2017

“A Brexit that works for consumers”

Consumer welfare is central debate surrounding the UK’s exit from the European Union. Whether or not the Government is able to secure a deal, and the nature of such a deal, will have a direct impact on the price of goods and services available to UK consumers. What should the Government prioritise in the upcoming negotiations in order to secure a good deal for consumers? Should we be looking to ensure access to the single market or should we be working to secure free trade deals globally?
