Businesses Need Immediate and Adequate Aid

Viable but vulnerable businesses need immediate and adequate grant aid to continue trading and creating employment.  According to the Central Bank Report 39% of firms have unpaid outstanding invoices.  The knock-on effect on the supply chain is extremely worrying.  I welcome this Credit Guarantee Bill but, at a minimum, interest rates need to be below 2.5% and businesses need a 12 month window before they have to make repayments.
