BCC urges Cameron to map out economic recovery path

Director-general says entrepreneurs need reassurance

The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) has called on the prime minister to “lay out the route to recovery” for the country’s entrepreneurs.

Speaking in the wake of David Cameron’s speech to the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester, BBC director-general John Longworth said the UK’s business owners need reassurance about the future of the economy. Longworth said that entrepreneurs would welcome some of the specific pledges made in the prime minister’s conference speech, specifically his “commitment to cutting red tape and to get credit flowing to small companies.” However, he added: “Entrepreneurs tell me they want to hear more about how business is good for Britain in the months ahead. “The immediate task now facing the prime minister and cabinet is to lay out the route to recovery, with alternative paths at the ready in case of further shocks from foreign shores.”
