P-05-1156 Match the funding for small businesses during lockdown with England - including the restart grant


This petition was submitted by Sally Gillard, having collected a total of 2,458 signatures.


Text of Petition:                      

In Wales, small businesses have received the smallest level of funding of all UK nations during the third national lockdown - despite being locked down for longer.


As of today, Rishi Sunak also announced a restart grant for small businesses to help with re-opening of businesses.


I urge the welsh government to support our smallest businesses properly, and match the grants provided to small business owners in other uk nations.
