BCC response to Shadow Chancellor’s speech:

Commenting on today’s speech from the Shadow Chancellor, Adam Marshall, Director-General at the British Chambers of Commerce said:

“Our business communities will agree with John McDonnell on three fronts: the UK needs more public investment in infrastructure, more focus on upgrades in the regions, and more decisions taken locally, rather than in Westminster.

“We may agree on the aim – but businesses will raise real questions about how Mr McDonnell plans to get there.”
