CBI North East discussion debate in the House of Commons today

Over 50 Northern businessmen and women are coming into Westminster today to discuss the upcoming budget, the state of the economy and the future of the country and the North East,
I will be debating on onstage with:
Rt Hon Nick Brown (Lab), Roberta Blackman-Woods (Lab) Bridget Phillipson (Lab) and Ian Swales (Lib Dem)
Looking forward to it. Everyone from Nissan to Newcastle Airport, several banks, colleges and business groups, plenty of the offshore and oil and gas businesses and local organisations like Nexus, Port of Tyne and others are coming in.
