FREEZE BUSINESS RATES

Business rates went up by 4.6 per cent in 2011 and 5.8 per cent in 2012. They rose by a further 2.6 per cent this year.

Imposing a substantial rates hike for the fourth year running can only lead to more empty shops on high streets and fewer chances of work, especially for young people.

If you think that would be wrong, then please let your MP know.
