Business is ready to grow but Government needs to give it the confidence to do so, according to Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce executive director Andrew Denniff.

Mr Denniff was commenting on a new report by the British Chambers of Commerce, which shows that 52 per cent of firms want to take on more employees before 2015, but they are being frustrated by a lack of skilled labour and burdensome regulations.

“The Government must put business first and give companies the confidence they need to create jobs, particularly when unemployment is at a high,” said Mr Denniff.
