I was delighted to visit Worcestershire earlier this year and look forward to visiting again soon.

This Government wants to help high-growth businesses scale-up, go global and invest in their future. The Scale-up Task Force which I co-chair focuses on that requirement.

This builds on the billions of financial support already provided by the British Business Bank to thousands of small businesses looking to start, scale up or stay ahead.
