The Gloucester Road Traders Association have secured a personal visit to this area by the Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Chris Leslie MP.

The GRTA say:

'He wants to come and hear what local independent businesses have to say about the issues affecting their trading environment, customers and profitability and to take away ideas that Labour can build into the planning for their budget and discussions at senior party level.
This is a rare opportunity to have your questions answered, and your issues raised with a senior politician, who has influence over the key matter of the purse strings, and is right hand man to Ed Balls, Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Mr Leslie will be meeting local businesses owners on Thursday 12th December from 3.30 pm, at the Bristol Pavilion, Gloucestershire Cricket, the Bristol County Ground, Nevil Road, BS7 9EJ.
The GRT Ltd would like to invite you to join them, so put the date in your diary and to ensure admittance please confirm your attendance by email to .
If you have any burning questions that you would like Mr Leslie to answer, or issues that you’d like to raise, please post them on the GRT Ltd forum at  under Gloucester Road Events  or  email your question to  .'
