John Stevenson MP for Carlisle will be hosting an event for Cumbrian businesses with Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen.
With local government reform in Cumbria less than a year away, potentially followed by a devolution deal and the election of a Mayor, this is a great opportunity to hear first-hand the benefits a devolution deal could bring.
The meeting will be held at Carlisle Golf Club, 8am for 8.30am on Friday 22nd October.
Speaking John said, “I am a huge advocate of devolution and the positives of having an elected Mayor. They would work alongside us to champion our area and bring investment into infrastructure and the wider economy. For many people, Ben needs no introduction. Not only is he an accomplished speaker but he has a proven track record of bringing positive change for the Teesside area since being elected in May 2017. I am sure many Cumbrian businesses would enjoy listening to Ben and make the most of the opportunity to ask questions in a less formal setting.”

The event, which includes breakfast, has a nominal charge of £12.50 and interested businesses and individuals should contact Cath Homer on 01228 550684 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place.
