Thorite MD Visits No 11 with British Chamber of Commerce

Thursday 29th September 2016

Stephen Wright, Thorite’s Managing Director, in his role as Chair of the West and North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce, was part of delegation chamber members to visit Chancellor Philip Hammond recently, who hosted a private roundtable with British Chambers of Commerce President Francis Martin, Acting Director General Adam Marshall, and business from across the Chamber Network, representing all nations and regions of the UK.

Following the historic vote to leave the European Union, the British Chambers of Commerce and Chamber businesses from across the country will update the Chancellor on current business sentiment, and what should be at the forefront of the government’s upcoming negotiations with the European Union. Adam Marshall, BCC Acting Director General, said: “We are delighted that the Chancellor is hosting this roundtable, to hear from dynamic businesses from all across the UK. “While the UK is likely to avoid a recession, businesses are still digesting the result of the EU referendum and the challenges and opportunities it brings. It is crucial that the government focuses on actions that support business investment and confidence. “Decisions on business-boosting infrastructure projects, revisions to our outdated business rates system, and a pledge not to introduce input taxes and other costs on business should be at the forefront of the Chancellor’s mind – and delivered in his Autumn Statement.”
