The UK’s exit from the EU has a number of implications for businesses in Wales. Four of the main channels through which impacts on Welsh businesses may potentially be felt are:

  • UK-wide impacts on the state of the economy and growth prospects
  • Changes to EU funding for businesses
  • Trade with the EU
  • Changes to EU regulations


Debate packs are produced by the Commons Library quickly after the announcement of parliamentary business. They are intended to provide a summary or overview of the issue being debated and identify relevant briefings and useful documents, including press and parliamentary materials. More detailed briefings can be prepared for Members on request to the Library.
