Jenny Willott, Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, has welcomed the publication yesterday of legislation for a new tax allowance which will particularly help small businesses. The legislation will give a £2,000 a year allowance to businesses that pay employer national insurance.

Commenting, Jenny Willott said:

"This will help all businesses, but smaller businesses in particular will really feel the benefit.

"Cardiff Central has lots of small businesses and entrepreneurs, many of which do not employ people or employ more people because of the burden of the employer national insurance.

"The Liberal Democrats have been working hard in government to introduce tax changes to encourage employment and this is a really significant step in the right direction.

"Already there are 1 million more people in employment under the Coalition Government. I hope this change will help grow this figure."
