Do you support the plan for jobs?
I've outlined the 5 point plan for jobs and why I think it is so important. Do you support this idea?
Backing local business - 04:44 pm, Fri 4th Feb 2011
Today I have been discussing small local businesses here in Bolton and how we can encourage them to succeed. I was informed of the 14 days of love campaign, which is all about recommending local businesses that you think provide a good service and should be supported.
The Labour Party believes that you can’t just cut public spending to tackle the debt problem; you must also encourage growth and get people in to jobs. If good local businesses can thrive, our local community will feel the benefit as will the country as a whole, so I am always keen to hear about new ways to encourage local business.
I was pleased to meet the campaign mascot, Juliette Love, who has been travelling all over Bolton encouraging people to recommend local businesses.
I hope that you will take another look at the businesses in your area and see what Bolton has to offer.
