BCC comments on announcement of new Prime Minister

Commenting on the announcement that Rt Hon Boris Johnson has won the Conservative leadership contest and will be the next Prime Minister, Dr Adam Marshall, Director General at the (BCC), said:


“The message to Boris Johnson from business communities around the UK couldn’t be simpler: the time for campaigning is over — and we need you to get down to business. 


“Companies need to know, in concrete terms, what your government will do to avoid a messy, disorderly Brexit on the 31st of October - which would bring pain to communities across the UK and disruption to our trade around the world. 


“We need to see swift action on practical, real-world issues here at home that hold businesses and communities back. 


“Tomorrow we will be sending you 15 specific steps you can take — right now — to rebuild business confidence swiftly over the coming days.


“We will work with you wherever we can to make these proposals a reality, but we will also hold you and your government to account for delivery.”
