Mrs Frazer, the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for South East Cambridgeshire, visited Ely Interiors, in Chequer Lane, to see the bespoke furniture and decorative items on offer.

She also stopped in at Octagon Studios, in Ely’s High Street, to see their great dance studio and Cambridge Philatelic Auctions, in Fore Hill.

Lucy Frazer said “Small businesses are the vital in this growing economy and we must do what we can to support them. I am pleased that in the autumn statement the Chancellor announced that he will again extend the doubling of small business rate relief for a further year from April 2015.

“This means that 385,000 small businesses will pay no rates at all.”
