The Tories say they don't want it because it doesn't bring any money in (in that case why *not* have it?). 'Business leaders' say they don't want it because it will 'put talented people off' coming here - presumably by curtailing their earnings.
A pretty clever policy, to have those two opposite effects! I think we can safely infer that it *does* bring money in, and that hypothetical 'talented people' are not what the captains of industry are really worried about.
