Autumn Statement 2014 preview: what business leaders want

Autumn Statement 2014 preview: what business leaders want, On 3 December, Chancellor George Osborne will deliver his Autumn Statement to Parliament, announcing new forecasts for growth and the budget deficit, and unveiling some important giveaways to businesses and individuals.
Although recent GDP figures for July to September revealed continued growth in the UK economy, this was largely driven by consumer and government spending.
For many UK businesses, the third quarter was not so rosy, as business investment and exports contracted.
So while austerity may have helped pull the UK economy back into the black, there is still pressure on Mr Osborne to deliver an early Christmas present to businesses to help balance their books.
The Telegraph spoke to four business leaders to find out what they would like to see in the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement to help improve business investment and drive UK economic growth in 2015.
