We have seen a number of very productive and high profile visits to BBBF in support of UK industry - the Duke of York, the Lord Mayor of the City of London, the Bar Council and key Members of Parliament, educational institutions, plus the networking and profile raising activities the BBBF has held which Jamie has kindly supported."
