Co-op Group CEO, Richard Pennycook comments on Theresa May’s Brexit speech

17 January 2017

Co-op Group CEO, Richard Pennycook said:

"The Prime Minister's commitment to resolving the issue of EU nationals working in the UK, and British citizens working in Europe, is very welcome. Indeed we have been urging the Government to act unilaterally on this in relation to those EU nationals here who are our neighbours, friends and colleagues. I hope she will keep up the pressure on those EU leaders not yet prepared to reach agreement on this issue because, as she says, it is “the right and fair thing to do”. All involved in these negotiations must recognise it is unacceptable to play politics with people's lives."
