Corin Crane said the "Build, Build, Build" announcements by Boris Johnson would be welcomed by many firms across the Black Country who worked in the construction and manufacturing sector.

"They must be delivered swiftly to drive and 'ramp up' business confidence and providing meaningful opportunities for employment across the region.

"Given that the Prime Minister chose our region to launch his "New Deal" it's now up to business communities here to take full advantage of these opportunities and to drive growth in the Black Country.

"It goes without saying that the Black Country Chamber of Commerce stands ready to work with the Prime Minister and his team to make these initiatives happen as soon as possible."
