Confidence among small Welsh businesses grows

Confidence among small businesses in Wales is continuing to rise, according to a survey by the Federation of Small Businesses.

The survey also showed that small businesses in Wales saw turnover rise for the first time since the third quarter of 2010.

This comes despite shopping numbers in August in Wales being 2.7 per cent lower than a year ago.

However, this could be down to an exceptional month last year as a result of the London 2012 Games.
