Local MP Mark Pawsey has spoken the House of Commons to raise the issue of growing small businesses who want to move to larger premises. During Parliamentary Questions, Mark Pawsey MP pressed the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills to do more to support growing small businesses.
Speaking after the session, Mark said:
“Now that the economy is growing again, and start-up businesses are receiving much better support from the Government, we need to think about how those businesses will grow. The lack of suitable premises is potentially a significant obstacle for many of them, so I was keen to press the Government to do more on this.”
“As someone who grew up in Rugby, and ran my own business for 25 years, I know what great potential there is among small businesses. We want to make sure that, as they grow, we in the Government are doing all we can to support them. We need flexibility which allows small businesses to come to arrangements that are right for them.”
“This Government has a good record of helping out small businesses and entrepreneurs, and now we need to ensure that as they grow, they will be able to find the premises they need to become larger and more successful businesses. This is something I will continue to press Ministers on.”
