BUDGET – APSCO
APSCo Responds to Budget
Businesses across the UK waited in anticipation today for George Osborne’s 2013 Budget, with recruitment companies in particular hoping to see new proposals which will benefit the professional staffing sector. And according to the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo), the latest Budget has a hint of positive news for the sector.
In response to the Chancellor’s announcements, Ann Swain Chief Executive at APSCo says “The recruitment industry will be disappointed by the growth figures unveiled by the Chancellor today, but a fiscally neutral Budget with positive measures for business is good news. If the Chancellor is serious about finding a plan for growth, he needs to get behind the engine of growth in the UK - the flexible labour market. The recruitment sector drives the flexible labour market, so backing our members is the first step to put our economy back on the right track.”
