An Audience with Rishi Sunak

Date
Thursday, 17th September 2020
Time
19:00

Join the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Rt Hon Rishi Sunak for an online evening where you will be part of the audience. Submit your question, if you have one, on the registration form and you could ask it direct to the Chancellor.

We are delighted to host Rishi for this evening event. Rishi took over the Chancellorship in February 2020. Shortly after he had received his red box the UK was plunged into one of the largest financial and social upsets in our modern history – Covid-19. As the UK reeled from the impact and was thrust into lockdown, business was brought to a standstill and people were worried not only about their health, but also whether they would have a job to go back to. The private sector, where so many of our taxes come from, came to a halt. Could businesses afford to pay salaries when their own finances were crashing? These were the major problems that Rishi had to solve. He came up with furlough, Eat Out to Help Out and many other schemes to help.

So, where do we go from here? Listen to the Chancellor talking in a relaxed setting, just to you and other members. Think of your questions if you wish to ask one. What do you want to ask him? There are so many areas you could cover, and we want a wide range. Unemployment? The High Street? Taxation: – a Conservative government, but will taxes be increased, if so which? In a Post-Covid world with more people embracing the work at home culture what will towns look like and how do we help small business who rely on commuter trade? With increased redundancies will we see more people in the gig economy and how do we protect them? How do we protect localism with the need for savings in local government?

What will you ask?
