THE Prime Minister, David Cameron, was guest of honour at today’s Federation of Small Businesses first ever major policy conference, held in London.

There around 300 delegates, including senior politicians from all parties along with many leading business figures, attending the event that is focusing on growth, enterprise and skills.

FSB Wessex region chairman Ken Moon said: “We are delighted the Prime Minister was able to address our inaugural conference today and to highlight the recognition placed on the long-term economic security small firms provide.

“It is an historic moment for the FSB and the UK’s millions of small businesses.

“Small businesses point to the burden of complying with regulation as a major barrier to growth and the work done to cut red tape will help. Importantly Government should ensure when changes are made, they are done properly and with small businesses in mind.

Within Hampshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight, we recognise that there is more to be done, and the Prime Minister in attending our Conference, emphasised the need for Government to maintain engagement with small and micro businesses from across the UK.”

The FSB is streaming the conference live to a global audience and those interested can join the debate on Twitter by following @FSBWessex and using #FSBGrowth and #FSBSkills.
