During Business Energy and Industrial Strategy Questions in the chamber today (Tuesday) David Morris MP asked Greg Clark, Secretary of State ,for his help in securing an Enterprise Zone following the completion of the M6 Link Road.
Speaking in the chamber David Morris MP said:
As always, my right hon. Friend has been extraordinarily busy, but may I ask my extraordinarily busy right hon. Friend to turn his attention to Morecambe and Lunesdale, as we now have a new link road going straight to the Heysham port and we would like an enterprise zone? Will he help me to get an enterprise zone?
In response Greg Clark MP said:
I am never too busy for Morecambe and Lunesdale, and I know what a passionate campaigner my hon. Friend has been for the business prospects in his area. If I may, I will talk to the Minister responsible for the northern powerhouse, who has responsibility for enterprise zones—I am sure he will be happy to have a meeting with my hon. Friend.
