MP meets Gates

BELPER’S MP Pauline Latham has met one of the world’s most successful businessmen at the Houses of Parliament.

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates was addressing a meeting in which he gave his views on why he thinks ending global poverty is so important.

Mrs Latham said: “It was wonderful to be able to meet with such a distinguished businessman and philanthropist. Bill Gates is spending his own fortune on trying to combat global poverty, and I greatly admire his work. Along with his wife, Melissa, he also runs the Bill and Melissa Gates Foundation, which has performed miracles for global health.”
