Small business owners from Cambridgeshire were given the chance to discuss the challenges of trade and production with MPs from across the county.
Twenty members of the Federation of Small Business (FSB) were given a tour of the Palace of Westminster earlier this month and enjoyed a networking lunch to talk about business in the area.
Sponsored by Huntingdon MP Jonathan Djanogly, the topics on discussion included increased regulation, supply chain bullying and access to high speed broadband.
Malcolm Lyons, chairman of the Huntingdonshire branch of FSB said: “Members from all over Cambridgeshire came to this event and we all had a very enjoyable and interesting time. Nothing beats explaining issues on a face to face basis to get our points across.
“Members who attended definitely learned a lot and also had time to network over lunch.”

Those who attended also met MP for North East Cambridgeshire Stephen Barclay, MP for South East Cambridgeshire Lucy Frazer and Daniel Zeichner, MP for Cambridge.
Jonathan Djanogly said: “This opportunity gave us a chance to discuss issues affecting small businesses not only across constituency lines but across party lines as well. Cambridgeshire is a great place for small businesses, but sometimes it is through working together that we can help to meet their challenges.”
