My Labour Love Affair: Federation of Small Businesses

Federation of Small Businesses:

‘Originally the National Federation of Self-Employed and Small Businesses, the *Federation of Small Businesses is the principal organisation representing smaller firms in Britain. In 1998, it had 110,000 members, of which 37,000 were small traders and 39,000 companies with fewer than four employees. Since its formation when it had the reputation of being an ‘outsider’ group, it has shifted towards an ‘insider’ strategy of influencing government policy through well-argued policy papers’.

From, John Ramsden, Professor of Modern History at Queen Mary, University of London.
