Prime Minister's Questions: Enterprise Zone

Peter Aldous makes the case directly to the Prime Minister for one of the new Enterprise Zones to be established in Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth.

Peter Aldous (Waveney) (Con): Taking into account the high levels of deprivation in Lowestoft in my constituency, and in Great Yarmouth, coupled with the unrivalled potential of the East Anglian coast for creating jobs in the offshore energy sector, does the Prime Minister agree that those prospects would be significantly boosted by the creation of an enterprise zone?

The Prime Minister: My hon. Friend makes a very articulate case for an enterprise zone. I am delighted that we have introduced 21 enterprise zones, and clearly there is a case that colleagues can make for more. There are real strengths in his area in terms of green-tech jobs, which I know he supports, and I am sure that the Chancellor will have heard his message.
