DO YOU fancy sitting down with your MP for a crisp Valentine’s Day beverage?
Labour MP for Portsmouth South, Stephen Morgan, will be meeting his constituents at a city pub on February 14 to discuss small business crime.
From 6.30pm until 7.30pm at the Golden Eagle in Delamere Road, Southsea, the politician will invite residents to share their thoughts on how the issue can be tackled.
It comes less than a month after Mr Morgan wrote to Portsmouth City Council leader Donna Jones, calling for a clampdown on the crime – following an attempted break-in at Johnny Black Photography in Vincent Road.
The incident put the store on a long list of Southsea retailers to have been struck by crime over the past two years.
On Thursday night, Mr Morgan will be joined by George Fielding of the city’s Labour party to discuss the problems.
In a letter of invitation sent to residents of Central Southsea, Mr Fielding said: ‘If you have any concerns or ideas so that together we can bring down crime affecting our community and small businesses, please do get in touch.’
