“We need to see swift action on practical, real-world issues here at home that hold businesses and communities back.
“Tomorrow the British Chambers of Chambers of Commerce, on behalf of the UK Chamber network, will be sending you 15 specific steps you can take — right now — to rebuild business confidence swiftly over the coming days.
