Small businesses to be visited by MPs on work experience

Date Added: 06/07/2011  

MPs are set to visit small businesses throughout the summer in order to carry out work experience and learn first-hand what it is like to run a company.

As part of the Business Buddy scheme, the Forum of Private Business is calling for every MP in the country to spend some time with an organisation - and more than 100 have already signed up to take part in the programme.

The forum's head of campaigns Jane Bennett said the aim of the scheme is to make politicians aware of what it takes to run a business on a daily basis.

"We can start to bring it home to decision-makers just how much small firms contribute to the economy and how the country will benefit if we make things simpler for them," she said.

Phil McCabe, spokesman for the forum, recently called for small businesses to do more to get their employees involved when it comes to making a major decision - such as where a new office should be located.
