Empowering women entrepreneurs

This week in the House I raised the issue of women in business.
I congratulated the Chancellor on the appointment of Karren Brady as small business ambassador. I also highlighted the coalition's record of 500,000 new businesses started last year, bringing the total to 880,000 now run by women, and accelerating economic growth to 2.8% a year.
Empowering women to start their own businesses is a crucial driver of our recovery. The recent economic news is very encouraging. Making use of all the talent, however, is the only way to entrench it.
