New Poole Business Lunch Big Success

Sir Robert Syms, our MP for Poole, chaired a working lunch with John Glen, MP for Salisbury and Economic Secretary to the Treasury, and local businessmen in Poole last Friday.

Penn Hill Councilor Elaine Atkinson OBE and leaders from over thirty local businesses were there to discuss such themes as how to reinvigorate the High Street, how to tackle the issue of student loan debt, and how we can build more homes.

John Glen spoke on the great benefit to consumers of the recent policy decision by HM Government to ban all surcharges for paying by credit card, including PayPal and Apple Pa,y which is broader in the UK than the original EU legislation.
