The Government will welcome comments from Lord Hill and Sir Paul Marshall, a hedge fund chief and ex-Brussels official, who is co-organising a conference for leaders from British universities, finance, business, industry and trade.
Sir Paul said: “I go into the business world and people are just getting on with it. And that’s what we need to do for the country.
“My motive in organising this conference was to bring a lot of people from finance, universities, manufacturing together who are focusing on the opportunities that lie ahead”.
Lord Hill said he was “obsessed by the fact that we should be putting our intellectual capacity in Whitehall, in politics, in business, in universities, into thinking about the future and thinking as well about some of the things the British government could do to enable business to flourish”.
The new legal row comes just a week after the Supreme Court ruled only an Act of Parliament could take the UK out of the EU.
