Robert Welcomes Pledge for Fundamental Business Rates Review

Robert said: "Listening to the concerns of local business, I have campaigned tirelessly for a fundamental review of the business rates system through my role as Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Small Business. I am delighed that it has just been announced that a Conservative majority government would launch such a review, and in doing so reduce the overall burden of business rates.

"This will be warmly welcomed by businesses across West Oxfordshire. It is vital that we support the small high street traders who do so much to bring character and individuality to our towns and villages."
