The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has urged the coalition government to put smaller companies first and help them to create new jobs.According to national chairman of the body John Walker, in order to add positions they need to be operating in a stable economy.Speaking to BBC News, he explained prospects are still being damaged by the state of the global economy, with problems across the eurozone also having an impact.Issues cited by Mr Walker include “too much regulation, limited access to finance which restricts how and when they can grow and increasing overheads which put a strain on cash flow”.Firms in East Anglia are likely to support the FSB in its aim to get the coalition government to provide more help for smaller companies.The FSB recently claimed superfast broadband should be a priority for rural areas in order to help smaller businesses utilise the internet.Posted by Edward O’Rourke
