The Government is concerned about the impact Brexit will have on the economy and society. While we can do a certain amount, there is also much that we cannot do or control. For this reason, we must try to mitigate the consequences of Brexit. No stone is being left unturned in our efforts to attract the European Medicines Agency to relocate here.

The Senator's comments on engaging with the private sector and civic society resonate with me as such an engagement would be a positive step forward. The Government will not be found wanting in its efforts to mitigate the consequences of Brexit and attract companies and agencies, including the European Medicines Agency, to locate here in the aftermath of the United Kingdom's decision to leave the European Union.
