If business want infrastructure investment they got the wrong election result

Posted on

This comes from an FT report this morning on a survey of tax opinion held by 75 large companies:

More than six of 10 of the companies polled said the tax system did not adequately support infrastructure investment.

One respondent said: “[The] UK’s infrastructure requires many, many billions of pounds spent on it. Tax policy needs to reflect this . . . if this country wishes to avoid the chaos that an inadequate infrastructure will create.”

Well if that's what they wanted they clearly supported the wrong political party yesterday.
