Suffolk Chamber of Commerce statement on the General Election result
John Dugmore, chief executive of Suffolk Chamber of Commerce:
“The outcome of the general election with this split decision amongst the electorate will generate further uncertainty for business communities. Therefore what Suffolk Chamber of Commerce’s members are now looking for is mature leadership across the political spectrum that seeks to avoid unnecessary uncertainty and confusion. Whether on the manner and type of Brexit we follow or on the need for investment in our infrastructure and skills base, businesses will be looking for certainty and clarity of purpose sooner rather than later.
“In terms of Suffolk’s MPs, we would like to congratulate all of those returned and, as in the past, we are very much looking forward to a continued excellent partnership in promoting the interests of Suffolk plc into Westminster and Whitehall.”
