Understanding small business

Good meeting today with representatives of the Federation of Small Businesses.  We discussed a range of issues facing sole traders and small firms across the North of Tyne including skills and apprenticeships, tax and the FSB’s Fair Pay Fair Play campaign which addresses the scandal of late payment.  As the founder of a small business in Blyth, I completely understand how important these issues are to small firms and I’m very happy to draw attention to them in this campaign.
