Business calls for support as UK voters head for the polls

08 Jun 2017

Following weeks of heated political debate, the UK is heading for the polls to vote in Theresa May’s snap General Election.

In the run-up to the election, business groups urged politicians not to allow Brexit to overshadow other important domestic issues, including boosting UK competitiveness, improving infrastructure and encouraging local growth.

Business leaders have called for the incoming government to provide an environment which supports and encourages small businesses, and a tax system that works for businesses of all sizes.

While aspects of foreign policy and social care have dominated many of the arguments, the main parties have set out their key plans on tax, infrastructure, immigration and investment.

Around 46.9 million people have registered to vote for the 650 seats at Westminster, with any one party requiring 326 seats in order to form a majority in the House of Commons.
