BIVDA comments on Parliament’s vote on the EU withdrawal agreement
Today, the House of Commons voted down the EU withdrawal agreement.
Doris-Ann Williams, BIVDA’s Chief Executive, commented:“The prospect of a no-deal Brexit remains of great concern to the IVD industry. We therefore continue to urge Government and Parliament to ensure that steps are taken to provide the clarity and stability required by industry to meet the significant challenge of ensuring the supply of essential diagnostics tests to UK patients through 2019.”
