David Morris MP yesterday raised the enterprise zone/ business park in Morecambe and Lunesdale during Prime Minister’s questions.
David Morris MP said:
I do welcome the jobs that have been announced. Furthermore, after 65 years of people in my constituency talking about a link road, one actually opened on my watch. I am also trying to obtain an enterprise zone or business park, about which I had a productive meeting yesterday with the powerhouse Minister and the Chief Minister of the Isle of Man, who I believe is here today. Would my right hon. Friend help, in any way possible, to ensure that this business park becomes a reality so that we can create more jobs in Morecambe and Lunesdale?
In response Damian Green MP said:
I agree with my hon. Friend. He will be interested to know that employment in the north-west of England has increased by 2.5% over the past year. The Labour Benchers may wish to welcome that, rather than to heckle. He is absolutely right to highlight the importance of business parks and enterprise zones as drivers of economic growth. I wish him well in his campaign, and I am sure that the Business Secretary will be happy to look into the matter.
