FSB responds to Programme for Government PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 01 September 2015

Responding to the Programme for Government, unveiled in the Scottish Parliament today by First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, the Federation of Small Businesses’ (FSB) Scottish Policy Convener, Andy Willox, said:

“At a time when businesses are finding it increasingly difficult to recruit staff with the right skills, the major focus on educational attainment should get an A pass.
“The news that the small business bonus is set to continue across the next parliament is similarly welcome and will help many small businesses plan more effectively over the medium term.
“New support for micro finance through a £40m SME Holding Fund will help more budding entrepreneurs take the first step towards realising their full potential.  It is through entrepreneurship that we will drive real social mobility in our communities.  It is by backing small business that we will deliver wealthier, more resilient local economies in which everyone has the chance to succeed.
“Elsewhere, we need to make sure that abolishing fees for employment tribunals doesn’t open the floodgates to vexatious claims.  Even when cases have no merit, businesses need to spend time and money responding to them – time that should be spent doing business.”
