Chuka Umunna: The Progressive Case for Business

Presenting a new paper which reflects on the work of the High Pay Commission (which he helped launch), and the subsequent work of the High Pay Centre, Chuka Umunna will make a progressive case for the role of business in society. At this time of uncertainty for British business, Umunna will speak about the positive and vital role business can play in supporting the growth of a more prosperous but also a more equitable society. He will consider the need for further reforms to the corporate governance code, on the question of executive remuneration and other key business issues. And yes, it is possible that Brexit will get a mention too.

There will be time for questions and debate after the speech.

Chuka Umunna has been a Labour member of parliament for the Streatham constituency since 2010. Before that he worked as an employment lawyer. He was shadow business secretary between 2011 and 2015. He is a leading advocate of the UK staying in both the single market and customs union of the EU. We look forward to seeing you on Thursday Feb 8th Please email to reserve a place
