High Peak MP Robert Largan took part in an online question and answer session hosted by Business Peak District and East Midlands Chambers of Commerce.
This was an opportunity for businesses to ask Robert about the range of financial support schemes put forward by the Government since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic.
This included discussion of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, access to broadband in High Peak, and local planning applications.
Robert has been engaging with High Peak businesses throughout the national emergency, taking up a huge number of cases directly to Ministers and the Council.
Business Peak District represents over 700 members, providing a voice for the interests of businesses based in or around the Peak District. The East Midlands Chambers of Commerce represent more than 4,300 businesses of all sizes across Derbyshire, as well as Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.
Robert Largan MP commented:
“This was a really useful Q&A with local businesses. I was grilled on a number of important issues, and it was useful to hear directly from those who are going to help our local economy bounce back when the current crisis is over.
“The Government has made available a significant package of measures to protect people’s jobs and livelihoods, but I am continuing to offer help and guidance to High Peak businesses, helping them access as much support as possible.”
