Local Government Parliamentary Reception

Last night saw the annual Local Government Parliamentary Reception in the Terrace Pavilion in the House of Commons.

Supported by the LGiU, the event is an opportunity for local councillors, officers and stakeholders to meet Parliamentarians and Government officials.

It is also a chance for MPs to learn more about the work of Local  Government All Party Parliamentary Group, which is chaired by Heather Wheeler MP.

The key note address was delivered by Grant Shapps MP, Minister of State for Communities and Local Government.
