Ceredigion MP Mark Williams has asked the Business Minister in the National Assembly whether she will also be implementing the measures announced by the Prime Minister yesterday to assist small business in flood affected areas.
The Prime announced that tax payments for small business in flood affected areas will be deferred, and that all business that which been affected by floods will get 100% business rate relief. Mark Williams is calling on the Assembly Minister, Edwina Hart, to implement the same measures for flood affected businesses in Wales.
Mark Williams said: "This would be a great help to the many number of small business whose ability to trade has been affected by floods, and I hope the Welsh Assembly Minister takes the lead on implementing this measure in Wales."
