Local MP Mary Macleod said: “It was great to hear the Chancellor speak to businesses in Chiswick Park this week. West London is such a fantastic place to do business – and Chiswick Park is the jewel in its crown. By cutting corporation tax to the lowest in the G20 and by cutting national insurance, we are doing more than ever for businesses of all sizes."
Mike Smith, Operations Director of Aker Solutions, said: “As a company investing heavily in the UK, Aker Solutions was delighted to be able to host this event on behalf of Mary Macleod in support of the West London business community.”
