BUSINESS people from in and around Portsmouth gathered at 1000 Lakeside in North Harbour for a business briefing.

Hosted by TV personality Fred Dinenage, it was a chance for the business community to quiz Portsmouth North MP Penny Mordaunt on any business issues in the city.

She urged business leaders at Portsmouth City Council to make it easier for local businesses to access them.

She said: ‘We need to have a much more creative and pragmatic approach.

‘We lose a lot of investment in this city because we’re not quick enough meeting someone or building up a rapport with them.

‘I’d like to see the chief executive getting out there and meeting people.’
