The comments made by Jonathan Reynolds, the Shadow Business Secretary, on 17 December 2021.
Every day the Chancellor is missing in action is an insult to the British businesses and workers who have struggled to get to this point.
They are now facing closure by stealth from a Government without the authority to take the public health measures required and back it up with economic support.
Firms are clear in their message to Government, they need help now not just warm words. Labour backs British business and workers with our plans to fix sick pay, ease the burden of debt repayments and cut business rates for small businesses.
