Business Links are central to our strategy for delivering business services to small businesses. Improving the Business Link service to small and medium sized businesses is one of my key priorities. I am committed to ensuring that all Business Links deliver a service which is of the highest quality. Many are already doing so, and I am discussing with the national Business Link partners and others how we can ensure that all Business Links are brought up to the standard of the best.
