Petition Cap energy price increases for small businesses.
Help small businesses in the current climate. My electricity bill alone has doubled in the last two years and is set to increase further. Similar small businesses are experiencing similar issues and will go under if there aren't any supporting provisions laid out.
Businesses have no power over VAT or energy prices etc. This needs to be Government led or else thousands of businesses will fail, this will create mass unemployment, an increase on the reliance of state benefits, an increase in the need for mental health services and an uptake in NHS usage. This issue is multi-faceted and if small businesses are not supported then the implications of their closures will be drastic and on a grand scale.
