The Government is failing to provide British businesses with the much needed certainty they need – Rebecca Long-Bailey

Rebecca Long-Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary,
commenting on reports of a proposed takeover of Unilever by Kraft, said:

“The Government is failing to provide British businesses with the
much needed certainty they need.

“With Sterling depreciating against the Dollar and the Euro since
last summer, unwelcome takeover bids aimed at buying UK business assets could
well increase.

“This makes the need for a proper industrial strategy all the more
important. At the moment all we are getting from this failing Tory Government
is more of the same, mismanagement and uncertainty.”
