It is great to have so many local independent shops and small businesses in our market towns. I'll back them to ensure they continue to grow.
I am fighting the corner of small businesses who are affected by the revaluation of business rates. I am doing everything possible as your MP to ensure that the impact of this revaluation is not unfairly shouldered by small businesses. I have regularly met with Ministers to lobby for the interests of our small businesses. One of my top priorities is ensuring that West Oxfordshire businesses continue to thrive, and that the UK has a climate which encourages enterprise.
West Oxfordshire is a thriving area with many small businesses and I will word hard to ensure our thriving local economy continues and grows, providing even more good jobs for local people.
