Editor’s Note

Comment on this story

In recent days there has been a lot of speculation and rumours about the fate of the “Inside Labour” column, published in Business Report on Fridays. The column is written by contributor Terry Bell.

In view of a strategic overhaul of Business Report, which forms part of a wider strategic repositioning of Independent Newspapers, I have begun a review of all the material that Business Report acquires from contributors, including Terry.

As part of this review, Terry’s column has been suspended pending finalisation of Business Report’s strategic plan. Business Report has communicated to Terry that it remains committed to enlist his expertise if and when the need arises. It is also important to note that contributors write for Business Report only at the editor’s invitation.
