Election Result a Source of Further Uncertainty for Business

Written by Paula Devine | 09 Jun 2017

Commenting on the General Election, Cheryl Smart MBE, Chief Executive of the Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce, said:

“The UK electorate has today accomplished the unlikely feat of piling more uncertainty on business communities already grappling with currency fluctuations, high up-front costs, and the Brexit process.

“The formation of a stable administration that can give voters and businesses confidence around both economic management and Brexit negotiations must be the absolute top priority.

“Companies have for many months been doing their best to ignore the ‘noise’ generated by politics in order to focus on their own operations. This result will prove much harder for many businesses to ignore – making the swift formation of a credible government essential to our economic prospects.”
