Stevenson Welcomes FSB Manifesto

SMALL BUSINESS IN NORTH-EAST CAN POWER RECOVERY

Banff & Buchan SNP MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the ideas put forward by the Federation of Small Businesses in their election manifesto.

The local MSP believes the FSB’s proposals sit very well with the progress the SNP has made in supporting small and medium sized businesses over the last four years with over 70,000 businesses having their rates abolished or significantly reduced.

Welcoming the publication of the FSB’s ‘The Journey Back’’, Mr Stevenson said:

“Small and medium businesses drive our economy and our communities and they have the support of the SNP. As a Scottish Government, the SNP worked with the FSB to deliver the small business bonus, putting in place essential support for small businesses during the recession.

“We have also invested in major infrastructure projects such as the Fochabers/Mosstodloch Bypass, and the new Transport Minister has given the go ahead for the dualling of the A90 at Tipperty to Balmedie following consideration of the findings of the public inquiry, both of which will be a significant boost to North-east companies moving their goods and services around the region and beyond

"At the next election I want to protect the progress made for small businesses over the last four years, and continue to help small business play their roll in boosting employment and economic recovery.

“Over the coming months I look forward to discussing with businesses across Banff & Buchan the policies an SNP Scottish Government can introduce to help business build a stronger recovery and make Scotland better.”
