White Rose Book Cafe recognised in the Parliamentary Review

 White Rose Books Cafe recognised in the Parliamentary Review The Parliamentary Review is an entirely apolitical publication, as demonstrated by the fact that its two co-chairmen, Lord Blunkett and Lord Pickles, once sat on different sides of the House of Commons and now do so in the Lords. The organisations who write for The Review are – for the most part – apolitical themselves, although some are unapologetically forthright with their views of certain political parties or individuals. This makes for a fascinating series of articles to suit your tastes and challenge your convictions.

Success for businesses of any size does not always come easily, and The Parliamentary Review is indispensable for anyone who seeks to make a name for themselves in industry. It highlights significant developments and concerns for business leaders up and down the country. The co-chairman of The Parliamentary Review, Lord Pickles, has praised the organisations featured in The Review. He commented that as Britain undergoes changes, it is “essential that politicians have a firm understanding of the challenges with which British organisations must contend” and that The Review once again provides a perfect platform for this.

Writing in The Review, The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Michael Gove says “this year’s Parliamentary review comes at a momentous time for parliament, as we collectively determine the destiny of the United Kingdom.” The best practice article for White Rose Books Cafe can be viewed here:  https://www.theparliamentaryreview.co.uk/organisations/white-rose-books-cafe
