Chamber reaction to ‘no confidence’ challenge to Prime Minister Theresa May


Commenting on the announcement of a ‘no confidence’ vote in Prime Minister Theresa May, Scott Knowles, Chief Executive at East Midlands Chamber, said: “This is just further frustration from a business perspective and another distraction at a pivotal time for the UK economy.


“Businesses need to be able to plan investment in premises, plant and people. Continuing instability in Westminster and over Brexit means they can’t plan anything long-term with any degree of certainty. The Tory leadership needs to be sorted out quickly so that the issue of Brexit can be concluded as soon as possible.”
