The business round table discussion is being hosted by the Mid Norfolk Federation of Small Businesses at the Cube in the Forum and will have people attending from the senior management teams of major Norwich-based employers.

Ms Reeves said: “We’ll be discussing the challenges businesses in Norwich are facing, and Labour’s plan for jobs and growth, including a national insurance holiday for small firms taking on extra workers and bringing forward investment in infrastructure and affordable housing, as well as the long-term reforms we need to make our economy stronger, including proper reforms to our banks to boost lending to small and medium sized enterprises.”

  • Any possibility of a return to a Labour Government would definitely tip me over the edge and leave this country. Anyone who votes for them must have a very short memory and have forgotten the 13 years of their idiocy which has left this country in the mess it now is. How she can have the brass neck to come and lecture business leaders (she wouldn't have a hope in hell of getting into MY business) is beyond me, she shouldn't be allowed off the train (gravy or otherwise)

  • Rachel Reeves has long been an expert on the lost decade of Japan,the same scenario Osborne's failed economic policies are causing here in the UK.The sooner she is in government the better.

  • NRG You make a good point! However, based on the last 13yrs fiasco, it is indeed a hard act to follow, so, more or less anywhere would be better than here with a Labour "Government"!
