Larking Gowen Budget Lunch at Wherstead Park, Ipswich

The day after the Chancellor George Osborne presented the Government's last budget of the Parliament, Dr Dan was delighted to be invited to discuss the Budget at a lunch attended by representatives of over 100 local businesses.

This year's budget has many benefits for businesses in the East of England and introduced the Broadband Connection Voucher scheme. Dr Dan has been at the vanguard of the campaign to improve Suffolk's broadband and helped secure £27 million of Government funds to deliver high speed broadband to 90% of Suffolk's homes by the end of 2015. He welcomed this new Government initiative, which provides up to £3,000 to support broadband connection and is open to all SME's, charities, social enterprises and sole traders, as a helpful addition to the good work already done in bringing high speed broadband to our area.

Dr Dan also warmly welcomed the Chancellor's commitment to the East Anglian Air Ambulance by providing funding for a new lifesaving helicopter which will have more room for extra crew members and the ability to fly over greater distances.
