A government minister visited a business club for one of his first public engagements .

Sajid Javid MP, the new Culture Secretary, was guest of honour at the meeting of the Harrow Business Club hosted by parliamentary candidate for Harrow West Hannah David.

After giving a speech on his new role in government, Mr Javid then took questions from the audience on the needs of small and medium sized enterprises in the area.

The club was launched last year to give businesses across the borough the chance to network and develop growth for Harrow.

Mrs David said: "I am delighted to have welcomed the Minister to Harrow on one of his first engagements since becoming Culture Secretary.

"The meeting was another great success for Harrow Business Club, and Mr Javid handled some tough questions with typical intelligence and ease.

"The Business club continues to go from strength to strength, and our membership has continued to grow."
