Cllr Julian Daly, used feedback from local businesses to inform local Conservative MPs Bim Afolami and Oliver Dowden on what sort of Treasury response would be most effective, including business grants and the furlough employee support. We are very pleased that his proactive action helped inform the Government’s proposals to meet critical business needs.
