Supporting Small Businesses (Video Transcript)

Supporting Small Businesses.

Small businesses are a huge part of the local economy and I has a unique idea on how to support them. An MP, during parliament sessions, spends around 4 days per week in Westminster. The other day should be used to hold a public clinic in their constituency. Most MP’s work out of a static office in the largest town of the constituency, such as in Stratford on Avon. I would run my weekly clinics from small business premises in the constituency, a different business each week. This would allow me to meet and understand the needs of the small businesses and to bring customers and public exposure to their business through the clinic. I would also include businesses in the rural areas, who often don’t get the exposure or visibility of the businesses in the larger towns.
