General Election 2015: 103 business leaders sign anti-Labour letter
Over 100 business leaders have warned that a Labour government would "threaten jobs and deter investment" in a letter to be published in The Telegraph tomorrow.
The letter, signed by 103 business bosses, praises the Conservative government which it says has "been good for business and has pursued policies which have supported investment and job creation".
Policies including the lowering of corporation tax showed the UK was "open for business", the letter argues. According to the Telegraph it is the biggest ever endorsement by business leaders of a political party.
Signatories include 30 chief executives of FTSE 350 companies including Bob Dudley of BP and George Weston of Associated British Foods, as well as recognisable figures such as Baroness Karen Brady and Duncan Bannatyne.
Companies on the letter include Bloomberg, Dixons Carphone, Iceland, Ladbrokes, Ted Baker, Marston's, Greene King and Asos.
