The parliamentary landscape in Cornwall remained unchanged as a result of the recent General Election. FSB Cornwall knows all six of our returned MPs very well already but through the election process we were quick off the mark in getting to make sure that our ‘Small Business, Big Ambition’ manifesto was well understood and adopted by all.
We didn’t stop there and got right in with keeping up the lobbying pressure. On the day after the election Scott Mann (MP for North Cornwall) stopped to speak to members at our Royal Cornwall Show stand and a week later, Sarah Newton (MP for Truro and Falmouth) met with members at the Business Space in Truro.
FSB Members remain the most powerful voice to reinforce messages regarding what the counties small businesses want and need for Cornwall. Meeting with our MPs enables real businesses to ensure that Cornish MPs pledge to champion these asks and have clear examples and case studies to help them do that.
We have more meetings scheduled and members are welcome to attend. See our website events calendar for details of MP meetings in your area www.fsb.org.uk/cornwall
