Election Panel Debate: Supporting Business Growth

General Election – Business & Politics

How will our MPs support business growth in the region?

When: 6-8pm, Thurs 23 April 2015

Where: Yorkshire Building Society, 6th Floor, Broad Gate, The Headrow, Leeds LS1 8EQ (entrance opposite top of Lands Lane where it meets The Headrow)

The most unpredictable election for many years is causing great uncertainty among many businesses – not good for confidence or future planning.

At this hustings event, just 14 days before Polling Day, we test the business expertise of some of the region’s political figures and explore the likely implications for growth in West & North Yorkshire.

– How important is the business community to our MPs?

– How do they intend to deliver what matters for Yorkshire’s economy from Westminster?

– What are the prospects for economic growth and prosperity if there is, again, no overall majority in the House of Commons?

These and other key questions will be posed by BBC Yorkshire’s Political Editor Len Tingle.  You will, of course, have the opportunity to ask your own questions.

All four main parties (Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat and UKIP) will be quizzed on the big regional business issues and how they plan to tackle them – transport, skills shortages, finance, devolution, global instability and (unfortunately) more.
