Our Regional Chairman, Brian Woods accepted an invitation from the Leader of Surrey County Council to attend the House of Commons for the launch of the Invest in Surrey Initiative
This very close reception was also attended by Secretary of State for Transport, Chris Grayling MP (pictured above) and Private Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury, Kwasi Kwarteng MP (pictured below) both known to or Regional Chairman.
Some lengthy conversations took place during this intimate reception at which small business issues relating to Surrey businesses were discussed, in particular the recent so called ‘staircase tax’.
In addition Councillor John Furey, Deputy Surrey County Council Leader invited our Chairman to future meetings to be held in County Hall. A very worthwhile afternoon.
