The British Chamber of Commerce has called on the government to make driving economic growth its number one priority. BCC director general John Longworth said:
The British Chamber of Commerce (BCC) has urged the government to "show some backbone" and take action to drive economic growth as they slashed growth forecasts, again.
The BCC, which represents more than 100,000 UK firms, now believes there will be no growth this year, as output will shrink by 0.4% before a rise of 1.2% next year, compared with its 1.9% forecast in June.
