Planning a (Norfolk Way) Bonfire and international agricultural biotechnology - Last Week

Last week I launched the ticket sales for the second annual Norfolk Way Bonfire, which will be taking place at Hunters Hall on the 3rd December (http://bit.ly/9Q1x6u). It is a great way to celebrate Norfolk’s rural Heritage and local produce in aid of Help for Heroes and the Norfolk Way Rural Enterprise Bursary and all are welcome.

I hosted a meeting in Westminster for the Agricultural Biotechnology Council, which saw farmers from around the world discuss their experiences of agricultural biotechnology (http://bit.ly/aRaLtk). I also attended the annual lunch of the Parliamentary & Scientific Committee (http://bit.ly/18QXZ8) at which David Willets was the speaker.

In Parliament, I spoke in favour of ending entitlements to universal benefits (http://bit.ly/cNneED) and took part in the latest oral evidence session of the Communities and Local Government Select Committee on the abolition of Regional Spatial Strategies (http://bit.ly/dyGXGY). I also attended a meeting focused on the lack of affordable housing in rural areas (http://bit.ly/dCr2NM).

Finally, I cautiously welcomed the news that BT were launching a new competition to gauge levels of broadband demand in Norfolk (http://bit.ly/dyGXGY)

As non-essential shops reopen their doors this week, it is vital that we do all we can to shop with confidence and support our local Norfolk economy.
