IoD press release Business is desperate to get back to some degree of normality
Responding to the announcement today that the Government plans to remove Covid-19 Plan B measures from Thursday 27th January, Dr Roger Barker, Director of Policy at the Institute of Directors, said:
“After almost two years of restrictions associated with the pandemic, businesses are desperate to get back to some degree of normality as soon as is feasible.
“This is an economy that wants to grow and the lifting of these restrictions is a welcome step to helping that to happen. However, we should not underestimate the scale of the challenges facing the economy in the coming months, not least the impact that national insurance rises will have on jobs and the cost of living crisis.”
