Get down to business

Transport, we are told, has replaced health as the nation's number one political concern.

These things are transient – health replaced education as the hot topic recently – but with a government that still places great emphasis on the public mood, the pre-eminence of any of these areas has profound implications for all matters political.

In this climate you would struggle to find a voter who would argue the company law review matters more than education, health or transport.

But the UK’s ongoing competitiveness cannot be taken for granted when the country’s system of company law is based on a centuries-old system.

Fears are mounting among Whitehall lobbyists that legislation to effect the company law review may not make it on to the packed parliamentary timetable. This would be a missed opportunity.

Business issues were sidelined at the general election and sidestepped in the pre-Budget report. They should not be ignored again – whatever the competing priorities.
