CBI: 'Labour's re-nationalisation plans will profoundly harm UK'

Labour’s plans for re-nationalisation will “profoundly harm” the UK economy, said Carolyn Fairbairn, CBI Director-General.

Speaking at Liverpool John Moores University, Fairbairn quoted CPS figures from “The Cost of Nationalisation” paper published in 2018 which estimated the cost of Labour’s re-nationalisation plans at over £170bn, or £6,500 per UK household.

Fairbairn added that over 8 million pension pots are invested in the industries Labour wants to nationalise and that these would “be at risk” if Labour carried out its plans.
