Energy supply chain businesses will be able to discuss the future of the industry and government support with three coastal East of England MPs at a special event.

Peter Aldous, Brandon Lewis and Dr Therese Coffey, MPs for Waveney, Great Yarmouth and Suffolk Coastal, are asking for “feedback from the shop floor” to take back to Westminster from people within the energy sector.

The event on March 17, staged by the East of England Energy Group (EEEGR) at Ipswich Town Football Club, runs from 8am to noon and will include presentations, panel discussions and Q&A sessions.

Mr Aldous chairs the British offshore oil and gas industry all party parliamentary group (APPG), while the other two MPs hold ministerial posts so have the “ear of government”, said Mr Aldous. EEEGR chief executive Simon Gray said it would be a unique forum for members to convey their messages to Westminster.
