Rob Wilson has welcomed news from local government minister Mark Prisk MP that his campaign for Reading and Woodley to receive ‘Town Team Partner’ status has been successfully approved.
Greg Hands MP spoke at Rob Wilson's recent Portcullis Club lunchtime seminar and local business people had the chance to quiz both Mr Hands and Rob Wilson on key economic issues.
The Portcullis Club provides a forum for local business people to hear the views of influential policymakers and to put questions on key economic and business matters. It's a valuable opportunity to discuss crucial business issues affecting Reading’s economy with your MP and other business people.
Rob Wilson MP, with event sponsor National Careers Advice Service and partners Jobcentre Plus and Reading UK CIC, is aiming to recreate the success of the previous three job fairs, each of which attracted more than 1,800 job hunters in search of new opportunities. A host of big name companies offering 1,000s of new jobs have already signed up to the 4th Reading Job Fair, including Grosvenor Casino and John Lewis who joined the Reading East MP to launch the fair at the Penta Hotel on Friday.
Rob Wilson, MP for Reading East, has submitted applications to the Department for Communities and Local Government for Reading and Woodley to become ‘Town Team Partners’. The move, which follows the unsuccessful bids for the Portas Pilots scheme earlier this year, means Reading and Woodley could both clinch £10,000 from the Government to spend on their original proposals in the bid.
