The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) has slammed MPs for the continued Brexit impasse, urging them to stop "chasing rainbows".

At the lobby group's annual conference today (Thursday), director general Adam Marshall is expected to tell MPs that businesses are "angry and frustrated" by the deadlock which is causing "real world damage".

Yesterday, the House of Commons failed to find a majority for any of the eight indicative votes on offer, ranging from No Deal to a second referendum or revoking Article 50 altogether.

With some key government figures scheduled to deliver a speech at the conference, Mr Marshall is expected to say: "Three years going round in circles... is long enough.

"To Westminster we say: We are frustrated. We are angry. You have let British business down. You have focused on soundbites, not substance. Tactics, not strategy. Politics, not prosperity."

The BCC's comments echo those of the Institute of Directors (IoD). On Wednesday, it also said its members were "angry and frustrated", adding calls for "politicians of all parties to listen to the voice of businesses as they make vital decisions on the path ahead for Brexit".

Mr Marshall will also use his speech to warn against the prospect of leaving the EU with a No Deal, and criticise those MPs who support such a move and "shrug off the possibility of shortages that could affect the well-being and the jobs of many people".
