Jonathan Djanogly, MP and Paul Fulcher, chairman of LEEA
LEEA goes to parliament
London, United Kingdom

The lifting industry congregated at the Palace of Westminster in London last week for a parliamentary reception hosted by Jonathan Djanogly, MP for Huntingdon, on behalf of the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA).
Welcoming 170 reception guests to the Palace, Djanogly said: "I am pleased to help LEEA recognise and celebrate its 75th year. I don’t believe that there can be many trade associations which continue to grow 75 years into their existence. On my initial visit to the LEEA training centre, I was struck by the fact that my constituency was the centre of the global lifting industry.
"I certainly hope that this is the beginning of a long and mutually beneficial relationship between LEEA and myself. For MPs, it is important to ensure that we stay engaged with the real world economy. As I look to the projects and solutions which are being introduced today, I see a strong future for LEEA and I hope to assist you and your association moving forward."
