“Right now some businesses are being quoted bills that are five times their previous rate.

“Businesses, particularly small businesses which make up the bulk of our economy cannot cope with these extortionate price rises while also dealing with other price rises.

“We now need additional funding to be allocated in order to help businesses to survive and to prevent closures and job losses.
