Following the Chancellor’s budget speech on 16 March, eight guests joined Jane Parry, David Gorton, Antony Keen and Helen Binns for PM+M’s very first round table event.

Amongst guests were Brian Bailey (Blackburn Council), Mike Cheston (Blackburn Rovers Football Club), Caroline James (Trevor Dawson), Richard Slater (Fettle PR), Jason Gledhill (HSBC) and Jenny Burke (Forbes Solicitors).
