No. I am afraid that I am in my last 30 seconds, otherwise I would have taken Ms Marra’s intervention.

Support from the Government and the local authority would not have been able to create the viable business that the intervention from PSN allowed.

I believe that there is a desire to work towards some form of grant-free scenario through the development of viable small businesses, whether under the social enterprise model or another model, and that the UK Government’s decision will potentially hinder that. We must consider how we support Remploy and its employees going forward.
