Liberal Democrat Candidate for Epsom & Ewell

  • Steve Gee

    I am your Liberal Democrat Candidate for the General Election.

    This blog gives you my views on current political issues.

    It also covers some Lib Dem
    policies that I think are particularly important.

Helping small businesses to grow

By pursuing a so-called “hard Brexit”, in which the UK would leave the EU’s single market and customs union, the Conservatives have lost the right to call themselves the party of business.

Unlike Labour and the Conservatives, we would stay in the single market. The Conservatives have lost the right to call themselves the party of business. The Liberal Democrats are now.

While the Conservatives focus on giving tax cuts to giant corporations, our focus is on small businesses seeking to grow.

A Lib Dem government would expand the state-owned British Business Bank to make it easier for firms to borrow. It would also review the system of business rates in England and Wales, whose revaluation earlier this year angered many businesses which were left facing bill rises of more than £1,000.

Many firms are struggling to borrow to invest and that is suffocating an economy being propped up on consumer spending.
