8 fantastic fringe events at Conservative Party Conference

Conservative Party Conference is a fantastic event every year. However, when there are so many events taking place, it can be overwhelming for new attendees.So we’ve put together this guide to some of the great fringe events going on during Conservative Party Conference 2019.

We’re bringing shipbuilding back to the UK

The Prime Minister announced that new warships for the Royal Navy will be built in the UK.This will secure thousands of jobs for people at British shipyards and ensure that the United Kingdom is a global, outward-looking nation as we leave the EU.

We’re giving police officers Tasers to combat assault

Senseless violence has blighted our streets for far too long.Over recent weeks, we have seen police officers attacked while simply doing their jobs. And tragically, one police officer was killed in the line of duty.

UK economic growth continues – record numbers are in full time work

New figures show that the UK economy continues to grow and wages continue to rise. With more people in full-time jobs than ever before, more people have the security of a regular wage. And with wages still growing faster than prices, people have more money in their pockets.

MEP joins forces with blind and partially sighted in Manchester to call for better bus services

Jacqueline Foster MEP has joined forces with constituents from Manchester to call for more awareness among bus drivers of the needs of blind and partially sighted people. Jacqueline, who is the Conservative Party's Spokesman on Transport, met on Tuesday with Alba de Toro Nozal, from Manchester; Kimberley Burrows, from Salford and Lindsay Armstrong, Regional Campaigns Officer for the RNIB, following concerns that blind and partially sighted commuters are being left waiting at bus stops and not being given adequate information while onboard.

Withington Sunday Lunch

On Sunday 2nd November the City of Manchester Conservatives held a Sunday Lunch fundraiser at the Greenfinch, West Didsbury to raise funds for the Withington Constituency General Election campaign. More than 30 people came out for the event including members from across the City of Manchester, as well as friends and supporters from across Greater Manchester to enjoy a two course Sunday lunch, raffle and guest speech by Baronness Williams of Trafford.

Better Together

The campaign to keep our United Kingdom is the most important we could ever fight.

Better Together was an amazing group. The atmosphere at campaign HQ in Edinburgh was electrifying.

I've met so many lovely people and the sense of shared purpose was something I've never experienced before. I'll remember it for the rest of my life.

We all owe a huge thank-you to everyone who worked so hard for this great result.  In particular, I would like to thank our own Rob Manning who has been tireless in his support for the Union and led the way in supporting our Scottish friends.

Now we must continue to work together for a better Scotland and a stronger, happier UK.

Statement on Situation in Manchester

In the wake of the recent events in Gaza there have been reports of boycotts and attacks directed against local businesses owned by members of the Jewish community. Manchester Conservatives believe that everyone in our city is entitled to live free from the threat of intimidation and violence. We do not think it is ever acceptable for groups to target individuals on the basis of their race and religion. We therefore condemn these boycotts and attacks which have no place in a civilised Britain.
