Last week, Dan held his latest Business Breakfast event at the Swan Inn pub in Hoxne, where he had the opportunity to meet with a number of Suffolk’s businesses and to speak about what he is doing in Parliament to support our local businesses.
Dan answered questions on a number of issues, ranging from the Government’s plans to introduce a basic state pension worth around £140 per week for every pensioner, to the impact of the Localism Act for Suffolk’s rural communities and the steps that are being taken to boost economic growth and support small businesses in Suffolk. He also spoke about the recent fall in unemployment in Suffolk and the continued success of our local manufacturers, along with the rise in the number of apprenticeship places available in Suffolk, which increased between 2009/10 to 2010/11 from 3,710 to 5,080.
Dan always greatly values his meetings with local businesses and values the opportunity to hear their feedback. Small and medium sized businesses form the lifeblood of our local economy in Ipswich and Suffolk, which is why it is so important to ensure they are properly supported. Dan will continue to do all he can in Parliament to ensure that all of our local businesses have the necessary support from Government to go from strength to strength in the weeks and months ahead.
