Responding to the General Election result Tim Morris, CEO of the UK Major Ports Group commented: “We look forward to working constructively and urgently with the new Government.”

“On Brexit, ports have been working hard for some time to cope with disrup-tion risk. But there is now a tremendous amount of work to do both in terms of making the ‘one region two systems’ arrangements for Northern Ireland work and on the vital practical detail of the future relationship with EU.”

“Fundamentally the UK’s ports offer the opportunity to unleash the potential of our Coastal Powerhouse – boosting post-Brexit capability to trade with the world, growing jobs and prosperity in coastal communities and enabling a more sustaina-ble, net zero UK. The ports are ready and ambitious to do their bit. We look for-ward to working with the Government and politicians of all parties so they can effectively play their part in policy areas like connectivity, planning reform, sus-tainability, skills and trade.”
