Local Conservatives at Manchester Conference

Rt Hon David Evennett MP, Lord Commissioner of HM Treasury, joined other members of the Bexleyheath and Crayford Conservative Association in Manchester for the Conservative Party Conference.

Mr Evennett attended a number of fringe meetings and discussion groups on a range of issues from Brexit, to Education, and Health, as well as socialising with other Party members.

He also listened to a number of speeches in the Conference Hall. In the Prime Minister’s address to the Conference, she set out the British dream “that each new generation in our country should be able to build a better future”, and “the historic mission of this party – this Conservative Party – to renew the British dream in each new generation”.

Some of the key messages over the last few days include:

• Taking a balanced approach to our economy – dealing with our debts to keep the economy strong while also investing in key public services and keeping taxes low for working people;

• Making our country a fairer place to live and work – putting the interests of ordinary working people first so how far you go in life depends on your talent and hard work. In particular it means delivering a brighter future for those starting out in life – because the next generation should always have it better than the last.

Getting the best Brexit deal for our country – which benefits families across the UK by delivering control over our borders, laws and money, and maintains the greatest possible access to European markets;

Leading on the world stage – striking new trade deals across the world, and working with other countries to tackle injustices and problems like climate change and global poverty.

Mr Evennett commented: “this was a constructive Conference and the highlights of the week were without doubt the Prime Minister’s inspirational speech today, as well as the speeches from Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who set out our bold and ambitious vision for our future relationship with the EU and the rest of the world”.
