Thriving market town of Eye welcomes visit from local MP, Dr Dan Poulter

Dr Dan Poulter was delighted to visit a number of shops and businesses in the thriving market town of Eye, where he met with a number of business owners and visitors to the town.

After enjoying a spot of lunch in Cafeye, Dr Dan was accompanied by local Eye Town councillor, Peter Gould and during the visit, Dr Dan enjoyed speaking with so many business owners and learning more about their individual successes and growth across many sectors.  The centre of Eye certainly seems to be going from strength to strength, with a number of new businesses popping up in the town.  Dr Dan particularly enjoyed visits to G Shurey's Butchers Shop, The Handyman, Shelf and English & Continental Antiques, to name but a few.

Speaking about the visit, Dr Dan said "Eye is clearly a flourishing centre for small businesses and you can't help but be absorbed by the strong sense of community and local identity which everyone is so proud of. The businesses offer a warm and friendly welcome to visitors, offering everything from local produce to carpet and flooring specialists, and antiques to modern home, garden and lifestyle products.  Small shops and businesses are the backbone of our rural economy here in Suffolk and I am sure that Eye will continue to go from strength to strength if today's entrepreneurial spirit is anything to go by."

We know that healthcare professionals who do cosmetics have indemnity insurance; they have a regulated body they can be held accountable to. Would it...

Plastics Recycling (23 Apr 2019)
Daniel Poulter: The right hon. Gentleman is making a very good speech. Does the issue that he has just raised not bring a wider and more important principle into the debate? Just as with energy production, the Government are beginning to meet targets through interconnectors and looking at importing renewable energy, perhaps from Denmark and elsewhere. Part of the issue is that the Government are potentially...
