A BUSINESSMAN has been to Parliament to serve up a dish of pies and protest.

Russell Walsh, owner of Potts Pies, was invited to Westminster to cook up a batch of his tasty meat and potato pies for MPs.

And while he was there on Monday, Mr Walsh lobbied MPs to raise the tax threshold for low earners.

The piemaker is at the forefront of a campaign to force the Government to raise the threshold to £12,000, saying it is unfair that employees on the minimum wage should be taxed on £4,500 of their earnings.
