This week we were pleased to welcome Anneliese Dodds MP, Shadow Financial Secretary to the Treasury, for the latest in our series of #LutherNetwork events.

Anneliese kindly joined us to lead a discussion on some of the key aspects of Labour’s economic and industrial policies in a roundtable consisting of attendees representing a variety of financial services and industry organisations, including trade bodies, industry regulators and consultancies.

Anneliese spoke of Labour’s plan for a long-term approach to economic decision making, a more transparent tax system and the ambition to encourage greater employee engagement by doubling the size of the cooperative sector. She also outlined Labour’s industrial policy, based on upskilling the workforce and closing the regional investment gap through a National Investment Bank.

In outlining Labour’s approach to Brexit, Anneliese drew on her experience as an MEP and stressed the need to remain closely aligned with European markets.  On the prospect of a ‘no deal’ scenario Anneliese restated the importance of avoiding a cliff edge at all costs.

Our thanks go to Anneliese and our guests for joining us.
