P-05-967 Welsh Government to amend its NDR relief policy to help keep Debenhams stores open in Wales

 

This petition was submitted by Peter Black having collected a total of 5,790 signatures.

 

Text of Petition                       

The Welsh Government has adopted different NDR Relief policies to England for the retail sector, excluding the small proportion of properties with a rateable value of over £500,000. With Debenhams already in financial trouble this threatens the viability of all their Welsh stores and the future of up to 900 staff. If these stores close it will have a disastrous impact on shopping centres where they are situated, reducing footfall for other retail outlets.
