Response to EU Referendum

Commenting on the result of the EU Referendum, COSLA President Councillor David O’Neill said today (Friday): 

“The result of the EU Referendum vote is clearly a significant one. COSLA backed Remain on a cross – party basis and as an organisation we have a leading role and strong influence in Europe so we are clearly disappointed with the outcome. We now need to consider the implications going forward. There is no doubt that it will take time for the detail of what impact the decision to leave the EU will have on us – but in the meantime, as always, COSLA will continue to provide advice, information and support for our member Councils in the best interests of both local government and our communities.”
