Dame Carolyn Fairbairn, CBI Director-General, said:
“Congratulations to Sir Keir Starmer. He has our full support to help develop policies that create and share prosperity across the UK. This is a time like no other for Labour and business to work in partnership to help our country survive the immense challenge of this pandemic, and move beyond it to revive our economy and tackle inequality.
“The current crisis calls on leadership in all walks of life, and firms across the UK are committed to playing their full part. Firms from Cornwall to Cumbria are demonstrating their contribution as a force for good, in support of the NHS, their employees and the most vulnerable in our society.
“We look forward to working with Keir to reset the relationship between Labour and enterprise to help support our country through this current crisis and beyond.”
