Responding to the result of the 2019 General Election, Liverpool Chamber CEO, Paul Cherpeau, said:

“Whilst other parts of the country voted overwhelmingly for a Conservative government, there were no real surprises in the Liverpool city region, where Labour continue to be the majority party.

The size of the government’s majority should ensure that the Brexit deadlock can be broken allowing businesses to plan for the future and the Prime Minister’s top priority must be to provide clarity around what the next stages of Brexit will be to restore business, investor and consumer confidence and to avoid a no-deal Brexit.

Brexit is just one of many challenges for business however, and the PM must now deliver on the commitments he has made over the last six weeks, including investment in our transport infrastructure, a focus on skills and talent supported by a fair and transparent immigration system, and acting quickly to address the issues which impact on small businesses.

The time for campaigning is over – now we need to see action.

We look forward to working with local MPs and government ministers to make the election promises a reality for our members, maximising the growth potential of the city region to ensure its long term prosperity.”
