Baroness D’Souza, the Lord Speaker, is inviting businesses to meet to discuss economic issues and trading conditions affecting local firms, particularly how the interests and voices of business are voiced through the House of Lords

The event, which takes place on Thursday (Oct 15), has been organised by The City of Truro Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the Hall for Cornwall and Cornwall Chamber of Commerce.

Speaking ahead of her visit, the Lord Speaker said: “I’m very much looking forward to the visit to Truro and to meeting with the business community there.

“It’s vital that local businesses and representatives of trade and commerce understand they can share their concerns and issues with members of the House of Lords and I hope all parties will find it an interesting and rewarding event.”

Giles Horne, chairman of The City of Truro Chamber of Commerce, added: “Securing a meeting with the Lord Speaker is a tremendous coup for Truro Chamber. With the pace of economic growth quickening and business confidence growing, this event is an ideal opportunity for our members to gain an understanding of how to influence Government policy through the House of Lords.”

The event, which will be held in the Municipal Buildings on Boscawen Street, is free to attend. Businesses can reserve their places by emailing secretary@truro-chamber.co.uk
