New Prime Minister Must Hit the Ground Running – Retail NI
Retail NI Chief Executive Glyn Roberts has said the new PM Rishi Sunak must ‘hit the ground running.’
“We wish the new Prime Minister well as he embarks on a tough road ahead” said Glyn Roberts.
“Rishi Sunak needs to hit the ground running to restore political stability of the UK Government and immediately address the economic crisis facing the country”
“His government needs to go further in supporting small businesses in Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK and we urge them to fund a further targeted business rates holiday to support struggling independent retailers and hospitality businesses”
” The Prime Minister also needs to ensure that political stability and devolved Government is restored in Northern Ireland. Many of our members are asking how will a further Assembly Election help or anyway improve an already toxic political situation?
“Real leadership and difficult decisions are needed”
