FSB Welcome Local MP to Business Breakfast Summit

On Friday 2nd November, Dr Dan Poulter was welcomed to Claydon Country House by Federation of Small Business (FSB) National Director, Alexis Lay, and a number of local FSB representatives as part of a special meeting with small and independent businesses here in Suffolk.

During the meeting, Dr Dan heard from a number of businesses their feedback and concerns on all manner of topics, not least of all, how the economy will be affected as Britain draws ever closer to leaving the European Union. Common themes reported by all were concerns around economic stability, supply chain and logistical transitions, and trade restrictions. Dr Dan assured businesses that he will feed their concerns back to Government.

Aside from Brexit, members were pleased to have the opportunity to discuss broadband and wider digital connectivity, road and rail infrastructure, local planning and of course, the recent improvements announced as part of the Budget.

Forums such as these are vital in allowing Dr Dan to hear the concerns of small and independent businesses and to do all they he can to continue supporting them here in Suffolk.

If we are serious about mental health and about improving care and reducing health inequalities in areas...
