Parliament debate for regeneration in Harwich
A TOWN leader will fight for jobs and training in Parliament.
Bernard Jenkin, MP for Harwich and North Essex, will insist Harwich is regenerated in a Parliamentary debate on Monday, March 11.
In advance of the debate, Bernard said: "Harwich is so often overlooked by the Government despite the best efforts of Tendring and Essex County Councils. Today there are schemes being designed which could help to unlock the economic potential of the area. The question is always: how do we tap the potential of Harwich?
“The wind turbine revolution is creating many new jobs, but too many jobs go to outsiders, because locals don’t have relevant skills and experience.”
Anyone who has particular points about Harwich and jobs can email Bernard Jenkin on email@example.com, with a copy also sent to his constituency assistant, firstname.lastname@example.org.
