IoD urges new Secretary of State for fresh impetus on Corporation Tax

Following the annoucement that Theresa Villiers is to replace Owen Patterson as Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, Mervyn McCall, Chairman of the IoD Northern Ireland said:

“On behalf of our members I congratulate Ms Villiers on her new post and look forward to welcoming the new Secretary of State to Northern Ireland."

“We hope she will bring fresh impetus to the campaign to vary the rate of corporation tax in Northern Ireland, and continue the strong commitment and action her predecessor gave to the issue."

“The IoD still views a reduction on corporation tax as one in a range of important measures to safeguard the future economic prosperity of the region.”
