Business Help

Christine has called for more support for small and medium sized businesses facing inflation increases in the new Chancellor’ revised plans for the economy.  

Christine said: “It's almost impossible to overstate how worried businesses are. So many people who have built a successful life for themselves and employees are telling me that inflation is causing them to fear that they may lose it. 

“The uncertainty caused by all the u-turns  by the Government just make the situation worse.

“One hairdresser told me he has been quoted energy bills more than four times the amount quoted in the summer. That is outrageous and just underlines how serious the situation is. 

“That’s why the Liberal Democrats have called on the UK Government, for a more extensive windfall tax on energy companies to keep bills down, a reduction in VAT from 20 per cent to 17.5 per cent for one year to reduce inflation, and on the Scottish Government to look at ways of easing the pressure too.”
