ACT meeting with business ministers: send us your questions

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

OParliamentn Tuesday 16th February the ACT, along with other key members of the Independent Retailers Confederation (IRC), will be partaking in a meeting with government officials in regard to the wellbeing of the high street.

The meeting is the second one of its kind, following a conference with Small Business and Enterprise Minister Paul Scully at the end of last year. In this meeting the topics evaluated any lessons that we have so far learned from national lockdowns and ways in which we can move forward from this using government support. Read more about that here.
