Federation of Small Businesses calls for greater information on access to funding for SMEs

Mrs Jones added: "Clearly there is work to be done to ensure that businesses understand what support they are entitled to and how they can access it.
"Small companies across Wales also tell me that they find the range of programmes confusing, too rigid and the application process time-consuming."
