General Election 2015 - Support Convenience Stores
There are 5,545 Convenience Stores in Scotland
They provide 42,000 jobs
The total value of sales is some £3.7 billion
Convenience stores provide vital services to our communities:
- Passport checking services

Scottish MPs can support our industry by:
- Extending the Employment Allowance for Employers National Insurance Contributions through the life of the next parliament
- Re-instating the Percentage Threshold Scheme to allow retailers to reclaim Statutory Sick Pay.
- Commit to ensuring that the Low Pay Commission remains fully independent and sets the NMW with objectivity and transparency.
