NACFB represents industry in Brussels

The trade body, which played a role in the bank’s manifesto document, said its inclusion is a sign that the views of small business lenders are being taken seriously.

The NACFB said it will send out the message that brokers and lenders need to be able to continue doing their jobs with minimum interference from Europe.

In a statement, the trade body said: “A number of eyes across Europe are focused on British politics this week (and, very likely, in the weeks to come as well). This is a very good time to be speaking, as we know we are being watched and listened to.

“Right now the British economy is a success story and we are looking forward to taking our place in Brussels and talking about how we’ve achieved that success.”
