Business Leaders

Asked whether the PM would tell business leaders attending a meeting later that day to stop whingeing , the PMS said that the meeting was private.

Asked whether the PM agreed with the Foreign Secretary’s remarks, the PMS said that the PM thought we needed a private sector-led recovery and the Government had taken steps to help achieve that. We have taken action to increase bank lending, we were cutting red tape and reducing corporation tax year on year to the lowest level in the G7.

Asked whether the PM was frustrated that those efforts were not recognised by the business community, the PMS said that the country was recovering from a very deep recession. It would take time to rebalance the economy, which would require hard work from the private sector and Government.
