BAE at Warton and Samlesbury are to have Enterprise Zones

Leader of the Liberal Democrats on Lancashire County Council, Bill Winlow, has welcomed the news that a new enterprise zone will be created to cover BAE’s Warton and Samlesbury sites in Lancashire. The news of a second site at the firms Brough facility in East Yorkshire was also welcomed.
Commenting County Councillor Bill Winlow said, “Firms setting up in these new zones will not have to pay business rates. This will attract new companies to these sites and help workers at BAESYSTEMS find new employment.”
Local business spokesperson Mark Jewell for the LibDem group added, “Vince Cables Department of Business Innovation and Skills have set up the Skills and Jobs Retention Group to help skilled workers find new jobs in UK manufacturing. The group will ensure that the shortage of engineers in UK manufacturing is not exacerbated by the loss of talented people from companies like BAESYSTEMS.
“The group has set up a new national web based system to make it easier for companies to recruit skilled workers who have been made redundant.”
