DAVID Mowat MP has welcomed new figures showing 280 people have been helped off benefits to run their own businesses.

The roles are as a result of the Government’s New Enterprise Allowance scheme which was introduced in April 2011.

The support starts with help from a business mentor to develop their business idea then, once they have got the business up and running, and have moved off benefits, they are eligible for 26 weeks of financial support as they get their business going.

The Warrington South MP said: “It’s excellent news that 280 people in Warrington have been helped to get off benefits and to realise their dream of starting their own businesses and being their own boss.

“Small businesses are a hugely important part of our community and vital to local jobs.

“That’s why supporting small businesses is an important part of the Conservatives’ long-term economic plan.

“There’s more to do, but these figures show that our support is helping people to get off benefits and running their own business, giving them the promise of a better and brighter future.

“And each new job these businesses create is another family in Warrington with the security of a regular pay packet.”

Lets see how many are still surviving after 12 months when HMRC attacks the businesses/owners for every penny earned.
