FSB reacts to Prime Minister’s speech

Commenting on Prime Minister David Cameron’s speech at the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester, John Allan, National Chairman for the Federation of Small Businesses, said:

“The FSB is encouraged by the Prime Minister’s commitment to building the Northern Powerhouse. We strongly support efforts to ensure growth and investment happens not just in London and the South but across the UK.

“We are also pleased to see Mr Cameron put boosting house building high on the agenda. Delivering more homes must be a priority for the nation, and we call on the Government to help small house builders to play their part in that effort. Small businesses will now look to the Government to deliver its promise for a pro-enterprise agenda to support growth and ambition.”
