Starmer wins plaudits for pledge to work with business
Sir Keir Starmer: ‘we must unleash our creativity’
Sir Keir Starmer’s pledge to support small firms and to invest in the digital economy was seen as a positive shift in Labour’s plan to work alongside business.
However, the party’s leader was urged to deliver details on how and when he would deliver his vision.
In his first address to a hall full of annual conference delegates, Sir Keir pledged to invest in skills and increase productivity by “unleashing our creativity”.
He said: “I have no doubt that the small businesses of this country are the next generation wealth creators.
“I want to see enterprising creative companies. I want to see them make a profit and employ more people.
“I want to create the conditions in which inventive small businesses can grow into inventive big businesses.”
