Meet Bradford MPs this April

You have the chance to put your questions to Bradford MPs, Judith Cummins and Philip Davies at our Business Lunch.

On Friday 1 April, Judith Cummins and Philip Davies, parliamentary representatives for Bradford South and Shipley respectively, will be at the city’s Midland Hotel to deal with questions and concerns raised by members of Bradford Chamber of Commerce.  Judith succeeded Gerry Sutcliffe at the last election, while Philip has been in the House of Commons since 2005.

Philip has voted against the Tory whip approximately 120 times and is an outspoken representative keen to defend local constituency matters as well having an interest in international affairs.  Judith is a former councillor in Leeds and Bradford, and was a benefits adviser in a previous life.  Philip has said on several occasions that he does not want a ministerial position as this would compromise his ability to speak freely on behalf of constituents.  Judith is currently lobbying vociferously against the planned changes to the National Media Museum.

Andy Caton, President of Bradford Chamber, said: “While the EU Referendum is the first thing on most people’s lips now, this event gives businesses the opportunity to raise issues with Judith and Philip that they may not otherwise have got.  It’s a two-way street, of course, as it’s a platform for the two politicians to convince the audience of their own convictions.  We know that they both have some strong views, some of which court controversy, and so it should be an informative, useful and entertaining event.”

The event is 12-2pm, Friday 1 April at Midland Hotel in the heart of Bradford.
