Matthew Lesh quoted in City AM and The Yorkshire Post

IEA Head of Public Policy Matthew Lesh’s response to Rishi Sunak’s speech to the Confederation of British Industry has been featured in City AM and The Yorkshire Post.

Matthew was quoted:

“the government needs an agenda to remove barriers to innovation and growth”

The Yorkshire Times quoted Matthew’s concern that planning liberalisation was being overlooked:

“Sunak entirely failed to discuss the single biggest handbrake on our prosperity: Britain’s broken planning system. It hampers the construction of infrastructure, factories, lab space and housing, which are all essential to innovation and growth.”
