Customers discussed a variety of topics with Fiona Mactaggart MP and provided insights into how they feel about the cost of living, economy and household finances; Government policies, and social issues.

 Asda arranged the visit as part of its ongoing Community Life scheme, which has seen the supermarket take steps to place its stores at the heart of their local communities, including opening up their doors for use by community groups and fundraising for local good causes.

 Fiona Mactaggart MP commented: “Today’s listening event was a great opportunity to chat to local families in a place where they usually shop for their family.  The cost of living is a topic that Slough residents regularly raise with me.  The Government’s benefits reforms are really beginning to bite and rising bills are hitting hard, so it was particularly useful to see and hear first-hand how families are managing their household finances.”
