Aldous secures visit from Chancellor

Waveney MP Peter Aldous yesterday secured a commitment from Chancellor George Osborne to visit Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth to see for himself the area’s potential and to discuss job creation.

Mr Aldous was speaking in questions to the Chancellor on Tuesday 7th September 2011.

Peter Aldous (Waveney) (Con): The Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth enterprise zone can play a vital role in promoting growth. Will the Chancellor accept an invitation from me and my hon. Friend the Member for Great Yarmouth (Brandon Lewis) to visit our constituencies to see for himself the area’s great potential and to hear from business and council representatives about the work being done to create new private sector jobs?

Mr Osborne: I certainly will visit Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft—and on a couple of occasions during this Parliament, I hope. I am delighted that the bid for an enterprise zone from Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft was successful. It was a very impressive bid, involving intelligent use of East Anglia’s offshore energy resources, and I look forward to seeing how work on that is progressing when I visit.
