Rachel Reeves responds to the Prime Minister’s CBI speech

Rachel Reeves MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to the Prime Minister’s speech to the Confederation of British Industry’s annual conference, said:

“Labour believes that government and business should work hand in hand to boost our recovery, grow our economy, and create prosperity across every part of the UK.

“The Prime Minister’s shambolic speech today not only shows how unseriously he takes British business, but also how his government lacks any plan for growth or to propel our enterprising nations forward.

“No one was laughing, because the joke’s not funny anymore.

“Labour is the true party of business.”
