Prospective MPs from the Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrats and Green parties, will be joining the Brighton and Hove Chamber of Commerce to debate and discuss the business issues that we are facing.
For those of you who have come to the Chamber's State of the City events you’ll know that these debate style events also provide a great opportunity to network with other attendees before and after the event.
Each party’s manifesto has its own policies towards business and we want to hear more about these before the election. We've invited representatives from each political party to join us to debate and discuss the business issues that we are facing.
Confirmed panelists are:
- Juliet Williams Liberal Democrats
- Simon Burgess Labour
- Charlotte Vere Conservative
- Caroline Lucas Green Party
Our Chair for the evening is Anthony Zacharzewski. Anthony runs the Democratic Society, a membership organisation supporting political participation and active citizenship.
These debate style events also provide a great opportunity to network with other attendees before and after the event.
We welcome your questions so come prepared! We’ll be asking the candidates some of our own in advance, the answers of which we’ll summarise for you on the night.
- Are they going to cut down on red tape for businesses?
- Will they make it easier for businesses to employ people?
- How do they propose to make it easier for businesses to borrow and get investment?
- Do they think it’s a good idea to close down Business Link?
- How will they cut the budget deficit and make the economy strong again?
Members and non-members welcome.
