Chance to hear from main political parties at small business debate
Vince Cable, Matt Hancock and Toby Perkins among spokespeople who will be taking questions at March event chaired by Emma Jones MBE
Entrepreneurs will be able to hear the small business policies of the main political parties at a debate-style event taking place on March 2 2015, ahead of the upcoming General Election.
Organised by Enterprise Nation, the debate will enable start-ups and business owners to listen and put questions to Vince Cable; secretary of state for trade and industry, Matt Hancock; minister for business, enterprise and energy, and Toby Perkins; shadow minister for small business, on their views on small business and the impact of their policies on enterprise.
Green Party leader Natalie Bennett and UKIP’s small business spokesman Margot Parker will also be on the panel.
The event will be running at 6:30pm – 9pm at the ICAEW in London with spaces for 200 attendees – it will also be live broadcast.
Enterprise Nation founder Emma Jones MBE said of the debate: “Small businesses employ an estimated 11.4 million, 47% of total UK private sector employment. They are the hard-working backbone of Britain – so it’s only right the political parties should explain their thinking in front of this growing and motivated constituency.”
