0 Comment

Chancellor Philip Hammond must do more to tackle rising business rates than simply limit inflationary rises, Mary Portas has warned ahead of tomorrow’s Budget. The former government advisor and TV personality known as the “Queen of Shops” has made a final plea to Hammond to halt rises in business rates in the Budget, “so that our independent retailers have a fighting chance of survival in today’s shaky and volatile market”. The move follows similar calls from the British Retail Consortium (BRC), British Chambers of Commerce, and several chief executives in the retail industry.
