Labour’s candidates Munsur Ali and Jason Pritchard have been talking to local small businesses in Portsoken and collecting signatures for a business-led petition. The petition, which was started by traders in East London, called on the government to halt the implementation of the new business rate hikes which could lead to the closure of many small businesses in the next five years. The final petition, which gathered a total of 10,562 signatures, was handed into 10 Downing Street on Tuesday afternoon by local small business owner Paul Gardner of Spitalfields alongside John Biggs Mayor of Tower Hamlets, Philip Glanville Mayor of Hackney, and Meg Hiller MP for Hackney South and Shoreditch.
