Deputy Leader of the Conservative MEPs attends the Conservative Party Conference, Birmingham 2018
Jacqueline Foster, Deputy Leader of the Conservative MEPs and MEP for the North West of England, once again attended the annual Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham in October 2018.
As well as being an opportunity to catch-up with members of the Cabinet, Members of Parliament and members and activists from across the region, Jacqueline had a full programme of meetings with key businesses, representatives from various organisations and hosted a number of events as well as addressing an ECR Group fringe on defence and security issues.
Commenting, Jacqueline said:
"Our annual Party Conference is always a highlight of my year and our time in Birmingham was no exception. When we arrived, a number of important questions were hanging in the air, not least around the road to Brexit with our date to leave the European Union just a few months away. But, as the Prime Minister reminded us in a powerful and insightful speech, the British people also want to hear about our wider vision for the future of Britain.
"We left Birmingham with a strong, determined and positive message, to take forward the challenges we face. A fantastic few days but we've plenty to get on with and deliver for our country in the months ahead!"
