Robert Buckland MP for Swindon South is in the thick of it for the seemingly endless Brexit debate.

Mr Buckland is the Solicitor General for England and Wales and much of his work is looking after the laws of the country. Which either way the Brexit issue goes Mr Buckland will be helping to redraft the laws which will govern the UK after the Brexit date at the end of March.

Despite his extremely busy schedule Mr Buckland was able to take time out for the Swindon Chamber of Commerce economic lunch which was sponsored by Barclays and hosted by the Double Tree Hilton.

Mr Buckland has been the MP for Swindon South since 2010 and was a supporter of Britain’s membership of the European Union while his fellow Conservative MP, Justin Tomlinson, who holds the Swindon North seat voted for Brexit.

Both Swindon MPs along with James Gray MP for North Wiltshire have spoken to the Swindon Chamber keeping members abreast of the current political situation.

At the recent lunch Mr Buckland was introduced by Ian Workman, managing director and co-head SME UK at Barclays Bank and thanked by Les Durrant, the president of the Swindon Chamber of Commerce.

Swindon Chamber Council has been behind the Government to ensure that a business friendly Brexit is the number one policy priority.

This was was fully endorsed and supported by the Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce group, the only accredited Chamber in the region, of which Swindon Chamber is a member.

The assembly of Chamber Presidents’ backed a right Brexit deal for the community and was determined as crucial for the future of not only Swindon but also the towns and cities along the Thames Valley.

Swindon is also home to global brands such as Nationwide, Intel and the UK manufacturing hub for Honda and BMW.

Around 30 leading business men and women attended the lunch and Mr Buckland answered a series of questions.

Adam Flint, the general manager of the Double Tree Hilton said he was pleased to be hosting the lunch and looked forward to be doing another.

"The Double Tree Hilton is part of the Swindon business community and it is important that we are at the heart of it," he said.
