The general election campaign kicked off in Rugby as three parliamentary candidates met businesses in the town to set out their agendas.

Mark Pawsey MP (Conservative), Claire Edwards (Labour) and Gordon Davies (UKIP) took part in a question and answer session with members of the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce at Brownsover Hall.

The ‘hustings’ was chaired by the chamber’s Rugby branch chairman Jim Griffin and topics included skills, apprenticeships, Rugby town centre, infrastructure, Europe and business taxation.
