"SMEs are of vital importance to local communities and to the wider economy, not least in job creation. It is essential that SMEs have a Labour Party that listens and stands up for them. That is what we are doing as a party, and SME4Labour has played an important role in contributing towards the discussion around SME issues both inside and outside of parliament. I congratulate SME4Labour on another successful year in bringing together Labour figures with business to discuss the big issues."
