Meantime hosts Vince Cable's first public appearance in South Lakes

Vince Cable, the Liberal Democrat Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, will be in Kendal on Saturday 28 November to meet members of the business community and hear first hand the issues which affect them, in a rare opportunity for business leaders to discuss their concerns directly with the people who can influence policy.

Joining him at the event, which will be held at the offices of Kendal web development company Meantime IT, will be Tim Farron, MP for Westmorland and Lonsdale. Both MPs will address the assembled business leaders to deliver their vision for the future of local business, as well as their policies on the wider economy. The presentations will be followed by an informal question and answer session, and the opportunity for one to one discussions with both Vince and Tim.

Mr Cable was one of the first MPs in the UK to warn of the impending global financial disaster. During an appearance on BBC2's Newsnight with Alastair Darling and George Osbourne, he was introduced by Jeremy Paxman as "the one MP who understands the British economy."

"The Liberal Democrats are an authoritative voice on both local and national business issues," says Tim Farron. "It is incredibly important to both Vince and I that we work closely with the business community to tackle the real issues that are affecting them, and this event will enable people to come directly to us with their concerns and feedback."

The event will be held at the offices of development company Meantime IT at Riverside Business Park on Natland Road in Kendal. Fenner Pearson is Meantime's managing director: "As an SME with both local and national clients, we are all too aware of the issues every business faces, " he says. "This is a rare opportunity to be able to discuss these issues directly with the people who can actually make a difference. We are delighted to be able to host such a prestigious event which will undoubtedly benefit the business community throughout Kendal and beyond. "

Tickets for the event, which starts at 3.30pm, are £50 per head and drinks and canapes will be provided.
