British Businesses Ask For Government to Implement Reforms

Most polled business owners want a simplified tax code and support the government's 'austerity' program


Further government action is needed to restore confidence in the UK economy, a business group has said.

Two-thirds of the 1,200 members polled by the Institute of Directors (IoD) saw little or no chance of Britain emerging from recession this year.

The IoD said its members wanted the coalition to do "a lot more" to boost confidence, such as simplifying taxes.
