Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP and Alex Chalk, Conservative Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Cheltenham, have combined forces to invite Lord Green, Minister for Trade, to address an inaugural lunch for a new business club on 23rd October at the Queens Hotel at 12:30pm that the two have established.

Mr Chalk said that since launching his campaign a large number of businesses in Cheltenham have welcomed the Conservative Party’s pro-business credentials.

Mr Clifton-Brown said that he hopes businesses across the Cotswolds and Cheltenham will welcome this new networking opportunity to be able to come together and to express new ideas right to the heart of Government. This group will be a new forum to bring all the different business sectors together to discuss ideas of mutual interest and to be able to rapidly lobby the Government.

Lord Green, the Minister with responsibility for encouraging and assisting UK companies to export, will attend the inaugural event to help launch the new business group. It is expected that he will be the first in a line of high profile guests. At least 50 businesses are expected to attend.
