Robert Courts, Conservative MP for Witney and an FSB member, has been elected Chair of the Small Business All-Party Parliamentary Group, after David Warburton, MP for Somerton and Frome, stepped down in February.
“I am absolutely delighted to have been elected as the Chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for small and micro business,” he said.
“Having been self-employed and a member of the FSB, I fully understand how critical these businesses are to our economy. I’m looking forward to championing their cause in Parliament.”
Before becoming an MP, Mr Courts worked as a self-employed barrister for 12 years.
