Just this week the Conservative Party set out their plans for a fairer taxation system if they were to win this year’s general election. Now, the Federation of Small Business (FSB) is requesting all of the main political parties to make clear their plans for small firms before the General Election takes place.
The FSB is due to have its annual conference in March this year. They have lined up speakers from all of the major political parties to speak at the event in Aberdeen. Speaking at the conference will be Tory Leader David Cameron, Nick Clegg, Leader of the Liberal Democrats and Business Secretary Lord Mandelson. Since the General Election is likely to take place shortly after this even, it will be interesting to hear the plans that each party puts forward.
In a FSB press release, National Chairman, John Wright, said: “The FSB’s Annual Conference is set to give small businesses the information they need to survive the year ahead as the country gets ready to go to the polls, and we look to an incoming Government to continue to move us forward on the road to recovery. The event will give small businesses the chance to hear exactly what politicians will do for them before the General Election.”
He concluded: “Small businesses truly are the lifeblood of the economy and are doing all they can to ensure the country fully recovers from the recession this year. The FSB Annual Conference 2010 in Aberdeen will give small firms the chance to debate the issues that really matter to them.”
