ICAEW publishes first manifesto.

Politicians urged to adopt institute 'policies'.

Political parties are being urged to adopt five public policies to tackle red tape, stealth taxes and rising fraud, among other issues by the ICAEW.

Just months ahead of the election, the institute has decided for the first time to get political by publishing its Manifesto for Business in a bid to achieve a ‘fortified economy’ throughout the country.

Graham Ward, institute president, said: ‘Securing a competitive, stable and prosperous economy is dependent on encouraging enterprise, rather than swamping business with excessive regulation.’ It will be sent out this week to all prospective political candidates across the country.

The two other areas the institute says should be priorities are the improved co-ordination of the regional economy and the introduction of agreed benchmarks for valuing human capital.
