What The Party Leaders Say

The Rt Hon David Cameron MP
The Rt Hon David Cameron MP, Prime Minister

"Since it was founded in 1977, the IPT has dedicated itself to building bridges between legislators and the business community. All parliamentarians need a good understanding of business, as it is the creators of wealth who produce the jobs and prosperity we need. The IPT Fellowship programme is a unique opportunity to acquire a greater understanding of commerce and industry through direct experience. It helps immensely in developing a two-way dialogue that can only benefit us all.”

The Rt Hon Nick Clegg MP
The Rt Hon Nick Clegg MP, Deputy Prime Minister and Leader of the Liberal Democrats

“The work of the Industry and Parliament Trust is invaluable in promoting greater understanding between legislators and the business community. Strong, well-informed links between parliamentarians and business people are central to the creation of sensible legislation that will benefit commerce and the wider economy, as well as society as a whole.”

The Rt Hon Ed Miliband MP
The Rt Hon Ed Miliband MP, Leader of the Labour Party

“Building stronger relationships between British business and parliamentarians is key to securing our country’s economic future. The Industry and Parliament Trust Fellowship programme enables legislators to gain valuable experience within industry. I strongly support the work of the programme in facilitating improved understanding of the challenges facing our businesses today.”
