The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has responded to the Committee on Exiting the EU’s report ‘The consequences of “No Deal” for UK business’, published today.

The report includes RIBA’s evidence, which details the dire consequences of a no deal Brexit on the architecture sector.

Alan Vallance, Chief Executive of the RIBA said:

“The RIBA has consistently argued that no deal is no option for UK architecture. Crashing out of the EU without an agreement risks access to talent, our ability to trade and the security of the sector as a whole.

Bold claims and big promises are often a feature of leadership contests, but the country’s future prosperity is not a bargaining chip. We will continue to guide our members and represent their views at the highest levels, including with the new Prime Minister.”
