Dear friends,

I am delighted to share news of this afternoon’s inaugral conference of the APPG on Inclusive Growth.

The day before an Autumn Statement expected to be full of announcements on regional development and growth Michael Heseltine and Andrew Adonis, the two leading advocates of regional and local devolution, regional growth and business engagement discussed the topic of regional growth – chaired by the brilliant Katja Hall, Deputy Director of the CBI.

The debate continued on twitter at #inclusivegrowth14

You can still view a video of the debate here:

 It’s well worth a watch!

After the debate we were joined by Sir Bob Kerslake, head of the Civil Service for a number of private seminars on a range of topics.

Today was the inaugural event of the APPG on Inclusive Growth.

The All Party Group on Inclusive Growth brings together senior politicians from across the main parties to discuss Britain’s economic future.

In July 2014 a cross-party group was set up to establish the All Party Parliamentary Group on Inclusive Growth. The APPG is now working with business, finance, trade unions, faith groups and civil society with the aim of forging a new consensus on reform of markets.

I have enclosed some photos of today’s event below.

With all best wishes
