Local MP Jo Swinson has launched a survey of 1900 businesses in East Dunbartonshire asking how she can help them grow and take on more staff. The surveys were sent out this week and responses will feed in ideas to help grow the local economy.
Commenting, Jo said:
“Business owners have had a tough battle in recent years and it’s great to see the economy recovering thanks to the actions of Liberal Democrats in the Coalition Government. But we know there’s much more to do to ensure long term, stable growth.
“Locally I’ve organised a Business Banking event, a jobs fair, and an apprenticeship campaign that saw 109 people given jobs or training opportunities.
“Feedback from the business community about what more we can do locally and nationally would be welcome. I want to hear from businesses across East Dunbartonshire, the people who make our local economy tick, on what I can do as MP and also what Lib Dems in Government can do to help keep the economy growing.”
