Caroline has written to the Mayor of London about his support for small and medium-sized businesses in London. SMEs in London need support as a crucial part of our economy, not just now, but also as lockdown is eased and they face the next set of challenges. They have real worries about facing a cliff-edge when the furlough scheme ends, with businesses having to close and workers losing their jobs.
The London Liberal Democrats will continue to work to support SMEs. Lib Dem-run boroughs are working hard to ensure small business loans are given to businesses that need them, and where we don't run the council our councillors are fighting to ensure this money is not sat on by Labour and Tory-run administrations.
