Shropshire’s MEP, Anthea McIntyre, was the guest of North Shropshire Conservative Association at a Lunch held in Wem on 9th March.

Speaking to a large number of enthusiastic members and guests, Miss McIntyre spoke about her role as a West Midlands MEP and the work she is doing on behalf of local people.

Addressing the audience, Miss McIntyre said:

“My priority is to stop the creation of endless hurdles to job-creation and the imposition of regulations that would further hamper local small businesses from growing and creating new jobs for local people.

“All too often we see examples of proposals that would add disproportionately to the burdens on smaller businesses and which would have the effect of stopping innovation and enterprise.

“Our small business sector is crucial and, by its very nature, consists of thousands of individuals who have taken a risk to create employment for themselves and others – these entrepreneurs should be congratulated and encouraged rather than swamped with bureaucracy.”
