Napoleon called us a nation of shopkeepers but Chancellor's Budget doesn't go far enough to defend this, Kingston University retail expert says

The announcement of a cut in business rates bills for small high street retailers in this year's Budget is a welcome move, but won't address wider issues affecting national chains and department stores, according to a retailing expert from Kingston University.
