Neil O'Brien, MP for Harborough, Oadby & Wigston spoke at a business breakfast hosted at the Harborough Innovation centre.
Neil was joined by Cllr Neil Bannister, Leader of Harborough District Council and a representative of the LLEP Business Gateway.
As part of the event, Neil provided updates from Parliament and key work of the Government, followed by questions from the audience.
Neil said, "I'm grateful to the Innovation Centre for hosting us and to Harborough District Council for organising this. It was very helpful to be joined by the LLEP Business Gateway also, to give a feel for some of the support available to local businesses.
There were a number of local businesses there which was excellent to see. They asked a number of wide-ranging questions including topics such as brexit, small builders and late payments. I look forward to future events to continue these conversations."
