LCCI react to General Election result

Friday 13 December

Peter Bishop, Chief Executive of London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said:

“Individual political viewpoints aside, businesses will be grateful that the election has delivered a clear result.

The uncertainty caused by previous parliamentary deadlock had significant economic and business confidence impacts.

The majority of London businesses now want the avoidance of a no-deal Brexit. And they want the government to agree a realistic transition period in order to negotiate a future trading arrangement with Europe that is as straightforward as possible, and provides access to balanced immigration of all skill levels.”
