Written answers (Question to Jobs)

As the Deputy is aware, my Department commissioned a survey, which was carried out by Behaviours and Attitudes in January, seeking the views of SMEs on the impact of Brexit on their businesses. This survey looked at the impact to date of Brexit and forward to the more medium term impacts (over the coming 18 months).

My officials have been analysing this data to build a picture of the types of challenges that will arise for SMEs as a consequence of Brexit, and how Government can best support them in facing these challenges.

I have asked my officials to expedite the completion of this analysis and I expect to publish the survey on my Department's website shortly.
