Mr Jones praised the district’s food and drink sector as he welcomed Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to the event at the House of Commons.

Speaking afterwards, Mr Jones said: “It was a highly successful and very busy event.
"There were companies from right across our county.
"It was a real team effort.
"Thank you to Slingsby Gin and the Yorkshire Flapjack Company for representing Harrogate and Knaresborough.”
