THE UK's small businesses are calling on the Prime Minister Theresa May to keep access to European markets as part of the Brexit process ahead of a key meeting with her today.

May is meeting SMEs and their trade associations as she plots a path to Brexit, and formulates her new economic and industrial strategy.

Mike Cherry, National Chairman, Federation of Small Businesses, said: “Our members want access to European markets, the ability to hire the right people, reassurance on key EU-funded schemes and a new approach to both regulation and de-regulation.”

May said: “From dynamic start-ups to established family firms, our small and medium sized businesses are the backbone of our country. They are a fundamental part of my vision of building a country that works for everyone, not just the privileged few.”
