Set out clear plans, CBI urges PM

Business leaders have urged the new Government to set out clear plans in the coming few months to keep the economic recovery on track.

The CBI called for action within the first 100 days.

Deputy director general Katja Hall said: "With one of the most unpredictable elections in living memory now behind us, the new Government must get into its stride quickly. It should set out clear plans for the next parliament within the first 100 days, and have a laser-like focus on delivery.

"The Prime Minister should prioritise building on the progress made to get the deficit down, finding more innovative ways to deliver public services and backing the final decision from the Airports Commission so we get diggers in the ground by 2020.

"Business will take an active role in arguing the case for the UK to remain inside a reformed EU, and it will be vital for the Government to set the bar for that reform at a level which is both ambitious and achievable."
