NCC Labour Group Manifesto Launch 2018

After Easter, Norwich Labour candidates and councillors launched their manifesto at Hansard Close, the site of brand new, state of the art environmentally friendly ‘Passivhaus’ council homes, built by the Labour run City Council.

Launching Norwich Labour’s City Council manifesto Cllr Alan Waters said “our manifesto builds on a track record of investment and practical improvements across the city and for every community in Norwich. It includes building much needed homes; successfully bidding for millions of £s for regeneration that will create new jobs, training opportunities, homes and businesses. Tackling inequality through campaigning for the Living Wage and an end to low pay and job insecurity; comprehensive advice services, ensuring people get the help they need and expanding support to local community networks.

There is a clear choice between a Labour Council that invests in the city, its residents and communities and a Tory Party that has spent eight years cutting vital services, including deep cuts in council budgets, running down the economy and damaging living standards”.

What does Brexit mean for our small businesses?

Should SMEs be optimistic about new opportunities to trade, or concerned about losing access to the EU market and talent pool? Is it a crucial opportunity to reform the regulatory framework, or could it undermine the future of key business support schemes? 

A year on from the triggering of Article 50, join us, and influential figures from the world of politics, business and education for a debate on the UK's future outside the European Union. You'll have the chance to ask your questions about how Brexit will change the landscape for small businesses, and the challenges and opportunities ahead.

The event will be chaired by BBC East Political Correspondent Andrew Sinclair.

Panellists include:

  • Chloe Smith, MP for Norwich North
  • Alex Mayer, MEP for the East of England
  • Hussein Kassim, Professor of Politics at the University of East Anglia
  • Martin McTague, Policy Director, Federation of Small Businesses
  • Tony Bambridge, Norfolk Chair, National Farmers Union

Book now and send any questions that you would like to ask the panel to andrew.mower@fsb.org.uk.

Click here to book via Eventbrite.

Registration, drinks and networking will begin from 5.30pm.

The debate will begin at 6.00pm, and will conclude at 7.30pm.

Half of the proceeds from ticket sales for the event will be donated to the Norwich and Central Norfolk Mind mental health charity.
