Scott has been out and about across the constituency discussing Conservatives plans to support the local businesses that are so vital to our communities.
Commenting, Scott said, "Only a Conservative majority can get Brexit done so that we can move on to creating a positive business environment that can provide even more jobs for the area and boost the local economy. The businesses I have been speaking to are terrified of a Corbyn government and what it would mean for their survival."
The Conservatives have pledged:
- Launch a fundamental review of business rates so we can deliver on businesses concerns and reduce the overall burden on business.
- Cut jobs taxes for more than half a million businesses by raising the Employment Allowance from £3,000 to £4,000.
- Provide tax relief on the purchase, building or leasing of a structure which will boost business investment.
- Boost private sector Research and Development investment by increasing the R&D tax credit rate from 12 per cent to 13 per cent.
