Brexit to the letter

2017-06-20T09:04:53+01:00June 20th, 2017|Categories: News|

Brexit to the letterOur managing director Simon Boyd has personally written to every single MP in the UK to urge a clean break from the European Union.
As debate continues at the start of formal Brexit negotiations today, Simon has sent letters to all 650 MPs at Westminster – including the Prime Minister – urging them not to ‘snatch defeat from the jaws of victory’.

He warned that watered down Brexit plans would hit thousands of businesses – especially SMEs – and be a betrayal of the will of the people.
Mr Boyd writes in his letter: “We voted Out and that means Out please.

Out of the EU but not Out of Europe. Out of the damaging jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice. Out of the single market that only works for the few.
“Out of the customs union that ties us to trading to a protectionist block.”

Simon’s letter comes after PM Theresa May vowed to keep pre-election plans to leave the single market and customs union to allow the UK to negotiate free trade partnerships around the world.

As a four-times winner of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise (International […]

Now is the time to invest in export

2017-05-15T14:39:11+01:00May 15th, 2017|Categories: News|

Press Release:

Simon Boyd, Managing Director of REIDsteel and Chairman of pro-Brexit Business for Britain South West, urged firms to prioritise investment following new growth figures and reports in the wake of the Bank of England’s interest rate decision.

He said: “With interest rates kept on hold and the continued weaker pound, now is the vital time for exporters to invest.

“The Bank of England has taken a more upbeat global outlook, based on better investment incentives and more competitive export opportunities.

“With growth in 2018 and 2019 forecast to be stronger than expected, businesses and especially exporters can use the time during Brexit negotiations by investing wisely and making sure they are ready to hit the ground running when we eventually leave the EU.”

Mr Boyd’s comments come before Labour and Conservative party manifestos are published this week.

He said: “Politicians of all colours must back exporters in their election campaigns and make sure support is available to help businesses drive investment, create jobs, boost growth and secure Great Britain’s place on the world stage post Brexit.”

The latest regional Purchasing Managers’ Index report from Lloyds’ Bank showed growth at its fastest […]

Simon Says.. Spring Budget

2017-03-10T10:37:15+00:00March 10th, 2017|Categories: Uncategorised|

Simon Boyd, Managing Director of Christchurch-based REIDsteel which works throughout the UK and exports worldwide , said: “It was a positive Budget as we look ahead to negotiations for Brexit.

“I am fully supportive of the Government and the work it has to do, and this Budget will help prepare the grounds for a strong economy during this time.

“From a business point of view there was good news with the reduction in Corporation Tax to 17%. The support for social care is welcome although a fundamental reform of the whole system is needed in the long term.

“The rise in the National Living Wage is also welcome because we believe in a decent wage for the UK workforce.

“Low productivity is a perennial issue and some companies prefer to employ cheap labour rather than invest in new technology, which is one of the measures required to help productivity levels rise.

“Funding for infrastructure improvements must always be a priority. I will be writing to East Dorset District Council and Christchurch Borough Council with an offer to meet to brainstorm ideas to win a slice of the £690m prize money available […]
