SOUTH Northants MP Andrea Leadsom held her first Business Breakfast Club meeting of the year on Monday last week.
The Breakfast Club was founded to strengthen communications between Mrs Leadsom and the local business community.
Four are held each year, mainly at Whittlebury Park.
Mrs Leadsom said: “The Breakfast Club is a great way for me to meet local business people and learn about what matters to them.
“In difficult economic times this is more important than ever.”
One of the topics of discussion last week was the Localism Bill. Several members of the club expressed concern at the changes to the planning system and at the potential reduction of the appeal process.
The next Parliamentary Business Breakfast Club is on Monday, March 19, at Whittlebury Park. Guests will meet from 7.45am for coffee, and discussions will run from 8am to 9.30am. Contact Kathryn Buckle on 01604 859721 for bookings.
