The chairman of the CBI is to blast Gordon Brown for tax rises and the growing regulatory burden at the CBI’s annual dinner this evening.
John Sunderland, also chairman of Cadbury’s Schweppes, is to say that corporate Britain is fed up with tax rises and say that the golden goose, British business, could ‘migrate’.
‘You have assured us that you have no intention of adding further to the significant taxation burdens which have already been imposed on business over the last eight years. Be certain that we will hold you to that,’ he intends to say.
Brown will share a platfrom with Sunderland at the dinner tonight, in front of 1,200 business figures.
