BCC Responds to Bean Review Interim Report

Commenting on the interim report of the independent review of economic statistics, led by Professor Sir Charles Bean, Dr Adam Marshall, Executive Director for Policy and External Affairs for the British Chambers of Commerce, said:

“Official data has a huge impact on business decisions and wider economic confidence. Charlie Bean is right to focus on addressing the quality and delivery of these statistics - particularly on how much the economy produces, and the limited availability of reliable information on key areas such as services and trade.

“Businesses want the Bean Review’s final recommendations to lead to official figures that better reflect the changing structure and characteristics of the UK economy, both now and in the future.”
