HELPING businesses grow and increasing tourism to boost Worcestershire’s economy will be the main focus of attention for an MP next year.

Harriett Baldwin, who represents West Worcestershire, said she will be doing her best to promote the area during a year when the world’s attention will be on this country as it hosts the Olympic and Paralympic Games as well as the diamond jubilee.

She added she wants interest rates to stay low to help stimulate growth and urged the county’s residents to support the local media.
