Home Secretary joins Lindsey Hall to champion small businesses in Westminster North

The Home Secretary Amber Rudd joined Cllr Lindsey Hall, the local Conservative Candidate for the upcoming General Election in Little Venice to show her support for Clifton Road’s family-run shops and businesses.

The pair visited a number of businesses along Clifton Road including Raoul’s café and local florist Absolute Flowers in a walkabout that highlighted support for local mum, Councillor and campaigner Lindsey Hall in Westminster North. 

Speaking on the campaign trail, the Home Secretary said: 

“I am delighted to be here supporting our excellent candidate Lindsey Hall. It is clear from speaking to local residents and businesses in the area that they understand the choice at this election is between strong and stable leadership with Theresa May or chaos and instability under Jeremy Corbyn”

Lindsey, a local Councillor for more than ten years, has campaigned successfully to protect local pubs and buildings from aggressive development and continues with her campaign to fight against unsustainable business rates. She wants to take her support for small business - the backbone of the British economy - all the way to the House of Commons this June. 

Lindsey commented:

“Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy providing thousands of jobs and building a sense of community - it is vital that we support them in everyway we can. I was delighted to welcome the Home Secretary to visit Westminster North and to introduce her to a small snapshot of the many local businesses in our area.

"I can think of no greater honour than to represent the people of Westminster North inside Parliament alongside Theresa May and to continue working locally with my colleagues at Westminster City Council to ensure our future best interests, both nationally and locally”
