Chuka Umunna had a stellar rise under the Miliband leadership, performing admirably in the Small Business brief before moving up to the Shadow Cabinet to take Vince Cable on across the dispatch box. Anyone who attended the Brixton launch of his Small Business Taskforce report knows that he throws an unusually entertaining policy event.
As a former City lawyer, Chuka has a good grounding in Financial Services issues which has made him one of the most perceptive commentators on the post crisis world and bank conduct. He is now bringing his legal training to the Home Affairs Committee.
Chuka will be talking about his time as Shadow Shadow Secretary of State for Business, the growth problem and why he believes the Government’s cuts agenda is presenting a false choice.
