Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. SMEs account for 99.9 per cent of all private sector businesses and 60 per cent of all private sector employment in the UK. Their success is crucial for the success of our economy. This is why Small Business Saturday is so important to highlight the success of small businesses and to encourage consumers to use them. This is also why Labour, in its 2017 manifesto, committed to helping small businesses up and down the country.
I picked up a gorgeous Xmas wreath from the lovely ladies at Monton Florists, get down there before they all go! Just one of the amazing businesses we have in Salford.
