The Budget 2015: Duo's Verdict

George Osborne's commitment to the North was welcomed by Duo's managing director David Brimelow.

David said on the announcement:

"It was positive to hear more on the Northern Powerhouse concept in the Budget - the fact that Manchester will now keep 100% of the additional growth in its business rates is a significant step in empowering the regions and rebalancing the country away from London and the financial sector. It's really positive for businesses in the North West that Manchester is leading the way in the regional devolution process; having  the power to make decisions over crucial local infrastructure, coupled with the news on business rates,  means we have a real advantage in generating additional growth.

For me though, businesses can't  simply wait for politicians, whether in Westminster or locally, to take the lead, the business community itself has a real role to play . We need to work together to harness innovation and expertise, create something greater than the sum of its parts,  and succeed in generating new prosperity for our region."
