now it's time for world business report. brexit means what in the uk general election? the labour party unveils its manifesto — we weigh up the arguments. and is this the doctor's surgery of the future? we'll be visiting a californian start—up which says it has the recipe for preventative healthcare. welcome to world business report. i'm sally bundock lots more in the programme including news from ford of significantjob losses. today the uk's labour party will release its manifesto ahead of next month's general election.
although the formal announcement is expected in a few hours time, last week a leaked copy of the document revealed labour's plans to scrap the government's existing white paper on brexit negotiations. the conservative manifesto is expected in the next few days. so where do the two parties stand on brexit? the labour party favours managed migration, but will stop short of committing to specific immigration targets, unlike the conservatives which has pledged to limit net migration to the "tens of thousands". jeremy corbyn‘s labour party says it wants to retain the benefits of the european single market and will negotiate on that basis. by contrast, theresa may's conservative paper has suggested it is prepared to take the uk out of the single market if necessary. labour has also rejected the idea that britain can leave the european union without first agreeing a formal trade agreement.
meanwhile, theresa may's says "no deal is better than a bad deal". pieter cleppe from open europe. colin stanbridge — head of the london chamber of commerce and industry. welcome to you both. clearly the uk general election is the focus here and brexit is one of the main issues voters will be thinking about. give us voters will be thinking about. give us your take on how important the election is for the mac negotiations? i think the fact that theresa may is basically putting her
job on the line and is organising a general election means there is some willingness on the uk side to compromise and to actually get to a good deal on the mac and my experience in brussels, judging from what negotiators and eu officials have said, i do not think there is so have said, i do not think there is so much of a negative stands. i think there is a lot of goodwill to make this happen as smoothly as possible. with the french election out of the way and the german election not so far away, it is all about domestic politics at the moment? yes, of course, but people like angela merkel and emmanuel macron, i do not think we should expect them to really complicate things. the real chance to get
brexit smoothly is time. both sides have to agree the terms of britain's exceptin have to agree the terms of britain's except in two years and how the status of britain will look like afterwards. some trans —— some the chamber of commerce and industry is trying to get the voice of business in this election. what do you make of what you hear from labour and the conservatives? our members really do wa nt conservatives? our members really do want a transition period. time to make sure we do not fall off a cliff
in two years time. both parties will talk about what that period will look like what will be in there because that is going to be important. our members have a number of worries and concerns about the effects of the mac. the prime one of thoseis effects of the mac. the prime one of those is access to labour. huge numberof those is access to labour. huge number of people who work and make london a great success, the world city that it is, our world and national '5 and we have to make sure they are able to remain. everybody talks and says they will be a right but we need someone definitive work on that. the free movement of people and your concern is what that means in that negotiations process and thatis in that negotiations process and that is something brussels will not wa nt to
that is something brussels will not want to write on at all. from our point of view, it is a practical thing. london has always been a bag of four people from all over the uk, the world and, of course, europe. we are talking about skilled labour from brain surgeons, two bristows. we need to keep london a world city. we need to keep london a world city. we understand that the referendum was fought in many parts of the country on a worry about immigration but the worry in london is that we do not have enough of it so we will be looking for some certainty on that. thank you very much to both of you for your time this morning. the labour manifesto will be released later on today and there will be a lot of detail as to what is in it
