ECA meets Small Business Minister
14 February 2019
ECA members Jascom Electrical and Jacobs Electrical recently met with Small Business Minister Kelly Tolhurst in her constituency, alongside ECA's Rob Driscoll and Kevin Bush.
They discussed the various challenges facing SMEs operating within the construction and facilities management markets. Kelly was very sympathetic to the issues ECA members face, and is supporting the SME agenda in her work as Minister.
Issues ranged across:
- Payment, and
- Brexit uncertainty
ECA continues to work with key stakeholders such as Kelly Tolhurst, the Cabinet Office SME Panel, Construction Leadership Council, BEIS, the Small Business Commissioner, and Oliver Dowden (Minister for Implementation) to ensure ECA members’ interests are fully represented.
