Morecambe MP Raises Enterprise Zone Again At PMQs

Morecambe's MP David Morris raised the issue of an Enterprize Zone for Morecambe's White Lund Industrial Estate in parliament during PMQs today, for the third time.

Mr Morris thanked the Prime Minister for her help in setting up a meeting with the Northern Powerhouse Minister to discuss a business park in the area, and asked Theresa May for her help in securing the start of the build for the third nuclear power station in Heysham.

Speaking in the chamber, Mr Morris said: "Mr Speaker I’d like to thank the Prime Minister, because she’s put me in touch with her Powerhouse Minister; and we’re looking now at getting an Enterprise Zone in Heysham, in my Constituency.

"But ever wanting to have a big wish list, would the Prime Minister help me, in any way possible, with my already ongoing campaign to get the third nuclear power station built quicker in Heysham, the tentatively linked Heysham 3 Power Station?"

In response Mrs May said: "Well once again my Honorable Friend is campaigning tirelessly for his constituency, and I welcome his efforts across a number of issues as he has referred to.

"We do need affordable clean energy to keep the lights on and in the decades ahead and he’s absolutely right that nuclear energy is an important part of our energy mix.

"Now as regards to the particular site: I believe that there is land next to the existing Heysham Nuclear Power Station, which is one of the eight sites in the UK that has been designated for new nuclear build."
