Greg calls on Employment Minister to take further steps to help small rural firms take part in the Kickstart scheme

The Kickstart scheme is an enormously important initiative for the future prosperity of so many young people across the UK. Local organisations such as the Workforce Skills Team at Buckinghamshire Business First are doing excellent work, helping co-ordinate companies wanting to participate in the scheme but unable to offer the 30 placements required to take part on their own. In light of this, at Work & Pensions Question Time on Monday 14th September 2020, Greg asked the Employment Minister what other steps she is taking from a national level to ensure small rural businesses are able to fully participate in Kickstart.
