“I am pleased that the government has backed down from their plans to introduce their sick pay proposals as if they had done so, it would have been the final nail in the coffin for many small businesses and would definitely put an end to job creation in that industry.”

“The other effects of the budget on small businesses remain to be seen, however, this is at least one welcome step” concluded McGrath
