David Cameron discusses the economy and the A40 with local business leaders at IoD Oxfordshire lunch

On Friday, July 6 2012 the Oxfordshire branch of the IoD held a lunch for its members with Rt Hon David Cameron MP. Hosted at the Blue Boar, in the PMs constituency of Witney, members of the local IoD attended what was a popular and informative lunch. David Cameron made a short speech on business and the economy and then he opened up the floor to questions.

David Cameron engaged his audience immediately by talking about the important role business has in improving the economy and the change that needs to happen in the balance of public and private sector jobs and on the heavy reliance of the economy on financial services jobs and the south east of the country.

Mike Collett, chair of the IoD Oxfordshire branch, said, It was a real honour to have David Cameron address our lunch guests and to answer their questions. He certainly gave us for food for thought on the macro and micro economic situation and reminded us that as business leaders we have the support of the government and that we really do have a key role to play in moving the economy forward.
