Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Leicester East

In December 2009, Dominic Grieve MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Justice came to speak at the Belgrave Neighbourhood Centre in Leicester. Following his speech, Dominic and the Conservative candidates for the three Leicester seats took questions from the audience.


The meeting was open to the public and people attended from across Leicester. The event was also streamed simultaneously over the web.

Ranbir Suri, Chairman of the British Asian Conservative Link BACL,  also kindly attended the meeting to hear from people locally, particularly business owners about the situation in Leicester during the economic downturn.


Jane would like to thank all those attended for their time and very interesting input to the meeting. She would also like to thank the Belgrave Neighbourhood Centre team for the excellent service they provided on the night.


WOT No Road?!


The people of Spencefield Lane, Evington were promised a new road surface by Leicester City Council. That's for the whole road. However, the new road surface currently ends at Welland Vale Road. I am in the process of investigating this with the council and will report back on progress.

The three Conservative Candidates for Leicester met with the Chairman and Regional Co-ordinator of the Federation of Small Business recently.


Jane later said "I found the meeting extremely useful in understanding the needs of the local business community. The Conservatives are keen to promote business within Leicester and inward investment to the city. They agree that cutting red tape and helping small business to take on more staff is an important way to grow the local economy and provide jobs for local people."
