Policy & Representation

Addressing the issues that matter to you

It’s part of the Chamber’s role to represent businesses like yours.

That’s why you’ll often hear us on TV and radio, or quoted in the press, commenting on issues and events.

We seek to influence decision makers on your behalf, directly here in Cumbria and nationally through the British Chambers of Commerce. We also bring key figures to Cumbria to meet businesses, including senior politicians and representatives from the Bank of England and the Low Pay Commission.

If there’s a policy issue that you’d like to raise, we’d love to hear from you.
