As you know, the Government has reached agreement with the EU on an extension for Brexit until 31 October 2019 at the latest, with the option to leave earlier as soon as a deal has been ratified.

Dr. Andy Hepworth, Professional Relations Manager at Essilor, FMO Director and Chair of FMO’s Lens Focus Group, has accepted an invite to attend workshops to discuss the UK’s future partnership with the EU. Andy is well versed in Brexit issues – earlier this year he supplied information on contingency planning in the event of a no deal Brexit.

Andy asked FMO members for their views prior to the workshop taking place. FMO will provide regular updates on developments. Andy attended the workshop on 20 August.
