Conservative Party Conference 2023

This year’s Party Conference was extremely busy and packed with events. It was a great opportunity to catch up with organisations such as the NFU, Food and Drink Federation, Countryside Landowner’s Association and the Falkland Island’s Government.

I spoke at a number of panel events on subjects such as devolution, boosting growth, private sector investment into cities, levelling up and the future of the high street.

The Northern Research Group (NRG) also launched the ‘Manifesto for the North’, Stronger North, Stronger Britain. You can watch my introduction and read the manifesto below.
