“Under my leadership, the United Kingdom will not pursue any relationship with Europe that relies on alignment with EU laws,” said PM Sunak at the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) conference in Birmingham on Monday in response to a Sunday Times story that suggested his government was seeking a Swiss-style Brexit deal.
The British Prime Minister who voted for Britain to leave the EU said that Brexit was “already delivering enormous benefits and opportunities for the country” and that innovation is what’s needed.
“Our most pressing task when it comes to growth is stability and controlling inflation. but that will never be the limit of our ambition. The more we innovate, the more we will grow,” said Sunak.
The idea of any Swiss-style deal on Brexit, which would see the UK aligning with the EU, is off the table.
Sunak told the business leaders at the CBI conference that he wanted to tackle illegal immigration. The CBI chief called on politicians to be practical about the issue and change the rules to help fill a million job vacancies that UK workers are not taking up. There are massive labor shortages across the UK, and Rishi Sunak’s been encouraged to increase immigration to attract more people to come to the UK to work. Sunak announced 100 visas for AI software engineers, but many say more are needed.
