On the floor of the House of Commons this afternoon, Lib Dem MP Tim Farron urged ministers to help small business owners and entrepreneurs who have so far been excluded from the Government's Coronavirus financial support schemes.

Speaking during today's debate in Parliament on Covid-19 restrictions, Tim said: "People who have been excluded from support include people who set up their own businesses 18 months ago, directors of very small limited companies, taxi drivers, hairdressers and the like.

"These are the entrepreneurs we need to build Britain back as we recover from the economic wreckage of the coronavirus.

"We should be investing in those people, not excluding them and leaving many of them in deep and dangerous debt."
