Championing Local Farmers
Wealden is a beautiful place, with rolling countryside, stunning forests and energetic towns. Wealden is also home to many amazing farms, which are the lifeblood of rural life. I want to build a Rural Powerhouse, one known for its thriving small businesses, including its farms and vineyards, as for the beauty of its countryside.
Backing Local Business
This Government has already put together a package to help small businesses – Keeping corporation tax down, reducing National Insurance contribution to access to start up loans. Britain’s economy is growing faster than any other economy in Europe, with 760,000 more businesses created since 2010 and 2 million new apprenticeships.
