Bristol West election candidates

The Bristol Junior Chamber (“BJC”) held Hustings for the Bristol West parliamentary seat recently.

The Hustings were held at the Bristol Offices of national law firm, Clarke Willmott LLP.

Six of the candidates for the Bristol West seat, incumbent Stephen Williams (Liberal Democrats), Thangam Debbonaire (Labour), Claire Hiscott (Conservative), Darren Hall (Green Party), Paul Turner (UKIP) and Dawn Parry (Independents For Bristol) took part.

Peaches Golding OBE chaired the Hustings.

The three candidates debated the Economy and Business, Education and Skills and Local Devolution and Transport in front of BJC members.

Karl Brown, who is currently BJC President, comments: “The Hustings provided BJC members with an opportunity to hear the policies and views of each candidate on important business and economic issues.

“Karl also added that the economy is a key theme in the current General Election and the future business leaders in the BJC membership are keen to ensure that whichever Government is elected provides the right conditions for businesses and the economy to have positive growth.”
