Midlothian firms are urged to take part in survey

Midlothian North and Musselburgh MSP Colin Beattie has called upon local businesses to make their views on RBS business lending known.

An independent review of RBS lending to small and medium sized enterprises is being conducted and Midlothian firms are being asked to share their experiences by taking part in the survey at http://www.independentlendingreview.co.uk

Mr Beattie said: “Getting access to business loans has been one of the biggest challenges facing small businesses in recent years.

“Many people who run businesses in my constituency will have strong opinions on what can be done better, so I hope that they will take the time to complete this survey.”
