EasyJet and Whitbread bosses ditched as government advisors

The bosses of companies such as easyJet and Whitbread will no longer act as government advisors.

Members of former prime minister David Cameron’s Business Advisory Group – including the budget airline’s chief executive Carolyn McCall and Whitbread chief executive Alison Brittain – were informed yesterday that their services would not be required by Theresa May.

The advisory panel met on a quarterly basis under Cameron, with other Cabinet ministers including the chancellor and business secretary also usually in attendance.

A Downing Street spokesman told Sky News: “The PM will be engaging closely with the business community as she delivers on the government’s priorities – ensuring that we make a success of Brexit, showing the world that we remain outward looking and open for business, and also building a Britain that works for all its citizens.

“As you would expect, the PM will seek to draw on a range of advice and counsel from business going forward.

“She thanks the members of the former Business Advisory Group for their service and expertise.”
