Labour to hold first “annual business reception”

The Labour Party will hold its first “annual business reception” tomorrow evening,  as it seeks to reach out to Labour supporters in the business community.

The event follows calls (including last year from many of the writers of the Labour’s Business pamphlet) for the party to engage more closely with business, and increasing calls from within the party to reach out to businesses – particularly SMEs – in the wake of Ed Miliband’s “Predators and Producers” conference speech last year. Speaking to LabourList earlier today a party source told us that the message being sent was that “we are a resolutely pro-business party”.

So far 500 people have registered to attend the event.

Everything Labour.
Every weekday morning.
