 Britain’s business confidence rose 15 points to a record 119.4 in the second quarter of 2015 according to Smith & Williamson’s Enterprise Index, Real Business reported. The result of the general election, delivering a majority government, left businesses with the stability they craved. More than 80% of the 200+ business leaders who took part in the established quarterly survey expect the economy to improve over the next 12 months. 70% of participants believe George Osborne’s March budget statement was good for business, so they have reason to be hopeful that policy will stay on track in his upcoming July announcement.
