Business breakfast


I attended a FSB Business breakfast at the Cantley House Hotel on Friday morning. The idea was a surgery for smaller businesses in the area.  Just five small businesses came, plus two from the FSB and myself.

I promised to follow up a Council matter over noise, and a question of what apprenticeship related courses our local College provides in the catering trades.

I provided information from the government about Libya where one of the businesses has interests. I had to confirm the dangerous state of many parts of Libya today.

We also had a general discussion of what would improve if the UK left the EU, ranging from having more of our own tax revenue under our control through energy prices and  regulatory burdens to control of our own welfare system.
