Question and answer meeting in Carlisle cancelled

The Federation of Small Businesses has cancelled a Question Time-style event due to take place in Carlisle tonight.

North West Euro MEP Chris Davies, Cumbria County Council cabinet member Tony Markley and Carlisle City Council leader Dr Joe Hendry had been due to face questions on infrastructure issues.

In particular, the lack of investment in transport and broadband in Cumbria.

A representative of Stobart Group, which wants to redevelop Carlisle Airport, was also invited to join the panel.

However, the Federation’s Carlisle and Penrith branch has cancelled the event at Tullie House Museum for “administrative reasons”.

Julian Whittle, business editor of the News & Star, was to have chaired the Q&A session.
