At Awards International, we were pleasantly surprised to receive a visit from Jeremy Corbyn on Tuesday morning.
Visiting our offices at Stevenage’s Business and Technology Centre (btc), the Labour leader came to discuss a range of issues: public investment in SMEs, a ‘green industrial revolution’ and his party’s position on Brexit.
He took questions from a range of business leaders, including our very own Neil Skehel. In particular, Corbyn stressed his commitment to creating 400,000 new jobs in the fight against climate change, increased funding for early-years education and a public bank to fund startups.
It was good to see an MP visiting us and putting the summer recess to good use – rather than chillaxing in Tuscany!
Corbyn was joined by the Leader of the Stevenage Council, Sharon Taylor, and Jill Borchereds, Labour’s candidate for the Stevenage constituency.
We would welcome a visit from the sitting Conservative MP, Stephen McPartland, to hear his side of the story! Who knows, maybe Boris Johnson will show up one day…
