I was delighted to meet a number of local businesses at my first in person Business Breakfast since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. We met at Dunton Environmental in Aldridge last week to discuss the issues which matter to them.
An important part of my role as your Member of Parliament is to be out and about across my constituency and to listen to our business community as we emerge from the pandemic and to understand the issues which they are facing.
Recent economic figures have shown that following the ending of the furlough scheme unemployment remains at low levels and the economy as we emerged from the end of restrictions has shown resilience with high levels of economic growth.
Following the budget it was good to hear the opportunities and the challenges which are facing the business community and hear what further support the community needs to help drive further economic growth, job creation and wage security across the West Midlands. It was great to hear their views.
The business breakfast was an excellent opportunity to raise and discuss issues with our local business community and I really appreciate everyone’s time and input. Thank You to Dunton Environmental for hosting the event.
