Closed petition Match the funding for small businesses during lockdown with England - including the restart grant

In Wales, small businesses have received the smallest level of funding of all UK nations during the third national lockdown - despite being locked down for longer.

As of today, Rishi Sunak also announced a restart grant for small businesses to help with re-opening of businesses.

I urge the welsh government to support our smallest businesses properly, and match the grants provided to small business owners in other uk nations.
