West Hallam MP Pauline Latham has called for a Parliamentary debate on reducing tax and bureaucratic burdens on small and medium-sized firms to ensure they can afford to export.

She made her plea to leader of the House of Commons, Andrew Lansley, as she prepares to stage a conference in Derby aimed at boosting the overseas presence of local firms.

Speaking in the Commons, she said: “I will be hosting an event at the University of Derby at which businesses can discuss exporting products. I am sure that we can all agree – even opposition members – that exports are key to positive economic figures.”
