Local MPs back 'Cumbria Day'

Cumbria Day was the brainchild of Copeland MP Jamie Reed, but all of Cumbria's MPs have come on board putting party politics to one side for the good of the county.

"We are the most remote English county from the seat of power in this country, we have a responsibility, all of us to plug our businesses in the capital whenever we can and there's few better places to showcase what Cumbria has to offer than the House of Commons, it is a draw for people rather than going to another ordinary venue or restaurant."
