He said: “Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy, that’s where the jobs and growth are coming from. Also our town centres are vital and vibrant and I want to keep it that way.

“A Conservative Government would go on trying to help with business rates through our business rates review, keeping the economy strong, keeping interest rates low, keeping taxes down so that small business can flourish.”

In an exclusive interview, Mr Cameron also talked about the dualling of the A1, ambulance cover, the privatisation of search and rescue, windfarms and Labour’s manifesto and record on the economy.
