Francis Maude MP visits Penzance

I welcomed Cabinet Minister, Francis Maude MP to a breakfast in Penzance this morning to meet with a number of people who represent organisations in the voluntary sector.

Francis wanted to hear what difficulties our voluntary groups faced as a result of less money being available for charitable groups from the public purse. It was a worthwhile meeting and I am full of admiration for the many groups that help to make life a little easier for so many people in West Cornwall.
