General Election 2024 Results Statement

Following the results of the UK General Election, read our Chief Executive, Dee Corsi’s full reaction below.

Dee Corsi, Chief Executive of the New West End Company said:

“Today’s result will bring much-needed certainty to businesses across the capital. Labour’s promise to deliver economic growth for Britain is reassuring for all who want to see our high streets thrive, and the new Government’s commitment to tackling a troubling rise in retail crime, reforming the outdated planning system holding back investment, and revising the burdensome business rates system is encouraging. Now, over the next 100 days, we must see swift action to turn these pledges into credible policies, constructed in close dialogue with the business community."

"If the new Government is truly committed to delivering growth for the UK, it is absolutely critical that businesses are invited to help shape the solutions to these thorny issues. As the voice of over 600 businesses with a presence in the West End and nationally, we are ready and waiting to partner with Labour to inform policies which will deliver on our shared vision for growth and restore the U.K’s competitive edge on a global stage.”
