Business response to the Chancellor's speech at the 2017 Conservative Party Conference

An estimated 50,000 Left-wing protesters are heading to Manchester to protest outside the Conservative Party conference in Manchester

Mr Hammond acknowledged that the process of negotiating Brexit had created "uncertainty" and slowed business investment and economic growth.

Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. Philip Hammond, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, spent much of his speech to the Conservative conference in Manchester reminding party representatives and the country of the dangers of Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party.

"We saw Labour in the raw, exposed for what it has sadly become: a party taken hostage by a clique of hard-left extremist infiltrators, people who despise Britain's values and talk down our country", Hammond told Conservative Party activists.

Asked whether Mr. Johnson should be sacked, the chancellor told ITV's Good Morning Britain: "We all serve at the prime minister's pleasure and we all owe the prime minister our allegiance and our loyalty within the cabinet".

He said the Tories needed to show that Britain's economy was working - to counter McDonnell's claim that the economy is "fundamentally broken".

But he acknowledged the damage inflicted by the tortuous process of Brexit.


"So before we can reap the benefits of our strong economic fundamentals and the investment we are making in the future, we must remove this uncertainty".

"The British people have chosen independence over integration and as we implement their decision, we must use that independence in our nation's best interest to protect our jobs, to strengthen our economy and to safeguard our prosperity".

- The UK's economic future will remain closely linked with the European Union, he said. And we will defeat them. This week's Conservative Party Conference showed that young people can no longer be ignored, but also that only the Conservative Party have the solutions to truly deliver for them.

"For some, it will feel like driving with your foot to the floor, but the handbrake half on". And he announced £300m for rail improvements in the north of England. As a candidate myself in Brent North, I had met hundreds of young people along the way who anxious about how life would be harder for them, than it was for their parents' generation.

When discussing what would attract young voters to back the Conservatives, Freeman said that it would not be achieved by "being trendy, and having Glastonbury-style things" - in reference to Corbyn appearing at the festival this summer - but admitted that there is a widespread cultural perception among young voters that the Tory Party is not for them.
