BCC Comments Ahead of Sajid Javid ‘Enterprise Bill’ Speech

Commenting ahead of Sajid Javid’s ‘Enterprise Bill’ speech, John Longworth, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce, said:

“It is great to see the Government start the Parliament with a real drive to support businesses.  If properly targeted – these efforts to cut red tape for business could make a real difference – saving time and money.  

“On late payments the government does have a role to play in helping to alleviate both the cause and effect. But in order to change the culture of late payment we need to see a concerted effort from businesses themselves.

“Businesses have been let down by successive governments promising to make inroads, so we will be watching carefully to make sure these proposals are delivered.

“To further free companies up from red tape and focus on growth, businesses will now expect to see a similar commitment from Brussels.”
