Supermarket switch: Call to hand back cash to help city’s small businesses

City MP Stephen Morgan is urging Government to urgently use the £2 billion cash handed back by big supermarkets to help hard-hit small businesses in Portsmouth and those who’ve been left behind

The proposal would help city businesses affected by new Tier 3 restrictions and help save pubs and traders in the hospitality sector suffering due to inadequate support from the government.

Stephen said:

“Whilst I’ve been running a Support Local campaign to encourage people to shop safely locally, in Parliament I’m pushing for a hospitality and high streets fightback fund targeted at those firms in Portsmouth that have been hardest hit throughout the crisis. Without adequate business support pubs, cafes and restaurants around our city  risk going bust, taking with them jobs, suppliers and the life’s work of so many”.
