Small Business meeting

Asked for a readout of the Prime Minister s meeting with small business leaders, the Prime Minister s Spokesman (PMS) replied that this was one of a series of meetings that the Prime Minister was having in order to listen to the concerns of business at this difficult time, particularly small and medium sized businesses. We recognised that they were facing a difficult time at the moment. There was a very constructive discussion at the breakfast meeting this morning, and the Government stood ready to do what it could to provide further assistance to small business to help them get through this period.

Asked if lending was discussed, the PMS replied that he was not going to get into the specifics of exactly what was discussed, but obviously issues relating to bank lending were a very serious concern for many businesses at the moment, which was why the Government was talking to them to see what more we could do to help them.
