Breaking Barriers - championing small businesses

Rahima Khan, Conservative candidate for Mayor of Newham, states her support for small businesses in the borough. Rahima says:

Newham is home to to thousands of small businesses and Conservatives are proudly pro-enterprise; we can only have great public services if we give people real opportunity to create their own wealth.

A Conservative Mayor and Council will not just support entrepreneurs and small businesses - we will champion them every day. We understand that it's simply not enough for government to increase access to borrowing - businesses need less regulation, practical advice, lower taxes and access to things like free banking well before they need to take on more debt.

As we leave the EU Customs Union Newham residents are extremely well placed to take advantage of free trade with the Commonwealth and we must prepare our local businesses for these opportunities.
