Writing in the Express, Mike Cherry, national chair of the Federation of Small Businesses, says the new three-tier system for deeming a region’s coronavirus risk “will mean huge disruption for firms.” He says the system will only work if funding for business support and guidance to accompany it is “sufficient, crystal clear and timely”. He adds that “far too many” people are excluded from the Government's efforts to help business owners, including company directors and the newly self-employed, adding that a rescue package for such groups is “urgently needed”. Mr Cherry says a world beating test-and-trace system is central to getting the small business community “firing on all cylinders again”, insisting that the sooner one is in place, “the sooner our economy can bounce back”.
