Have your say

FIRMS are being asked to give their views on exports for a House of Lords select committee.

Portsmouth North MP Penny Mordaunt is looking for small and medium-sized enterprises to join in with the study.

She would like to hear from firms who have been able to export their goods

or services, as well as those which

have chosen to keep their business in the UK.

She said: ‘I would like to encourage as many businesses as possible to participate in this report by the House of Lords.

‘Much is being done to help small businesses export, but I am sure there is much more we could be doing.’

The committee would like businesses to answer a set of 12 questions, focussing on the current export market, the internationalisation of SMEs, barriers and market failures, incentives, and government action.

Copies of the call for evidence, which includes the 12 questions are available from Ms Mordaunt’s office in London Road, Hilsea, or by emailing penny.mordaunt.mp@parliament.uk.

They can also be downloaded directly from the select committee’s website, at parliament.uk.

Alternatively, email business editor Emma Judd on emma.judd@thenews.co.uk for a copy.
