Leek Post & Times - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR - Staffordshire Moor­lands MP

LAST week saw the Chan­cel­lor de­liver the au­tumn Bud­get which pro­vides a com­pre­hen­sive plan to sup­port the heath ser­vice, our high streets, and en­sure work­ing peo­ple in Staffordshire Moor­lands have more money in their pock­ets.

The Chan­cel­lor set out how the hard work of the Bri­tish peo­ple is pay­ing off, and how our care­ful fis­cal man­age­ment and solid eco­nomic re­cov­ery means that aus­ter­ity is com­ing to an end.

As Sec­re­tary of State for North­ern Ire­land I was at the dis­patch box on Wed­nes­day just be­fore PMQS, tak­ing ques­tions from col­leagues on North­ern Ire­land and on a more lo­cal note, I was de­lighted to join Staffordshire and Stokeon-trent MPS, lo­cal gov­ern­ment, busi­nesses and char­i­ties at the 2018 Cel­e­bra­tion of Staffordshire Par­lia­men­tary event.

Staffordshire Moor­lands has such a wealth of tal­ent and so much to of­fer and I was pleased to in­vite some lo­cal busi­nesses and char­i­ties to rep­re­sent us at this spe­cial event. It was a plea­sure to meet up with Frances Brom­ley from the Sca­betti stu­dio in Leek, Ross Podyma from the lo­cal sport­ing com­mu­ni­ties as well as Sara Williams CEO of the Staffordshire Chambers of Com­merce.

The event was held in the Ju­bilee Room, an an­nex of the his­toric West­min­ster Hall, where tilers from Staffordshire fa­mously built the en­trance to the room.

It was won­der­ful to see so many par­lia­men­tary col­leagues, small busi­nesses, char­i­ties and lo­cal he­roes come to­gether for this cel­e­bra­tion of Staffordshire in Par­lia­ment.

I was very pleased to sup­port the event and am pleased that so many Cab­i­net min­is­ters were able to at­tend to hear first­hand the suc­cess that is hap­pen­ing in our county. I was re­ally proud to be able to show­case our fan­tas­tic busi­nesses and char­i­ties and to be able to help pro­mote Staffordshire Moor­lands and Staffordshire at this Par­lia­men­tary event.

Karen Bradley MP, right, with Frances Brom­ley from the Sca­betti stu­dio in Leek.
