Small and medium sized enterprises have a low profile but a vital role in the UK economy providing employment, training, innovation and flexibility in times of change. Their health and vitality will be essential during the challenging Brexit transition and this means that they will need all the help a government can provide in terms of physical and digital infrastructure as well as a financial environment in which market disruptions can be weathered. The Labour party has outlined a number of relevant policies including investment plans and the establishment of a national investment bank. Bill Esterson MP, the Shadow Minister for Small Business will lead a discussion on these proposals and what more needs to be done.
