Government must invest in Ulverston following GSK announcement - MP

October 4, 2018 6:02 PM

Commenting on the news that GSK has announced it will make 190 employees redundant at its site in Ulverston, local MP Tim Farron said:

"This is incredibly sad news and a massive blow to the South Cumbrian economy.

"The tragic irony is that this comes just days after the Northern Powerhouse minister visited Ulverston.

"This is a moment for the Government to prove that the Powerhouse does mean something to anyone north of Preston and provide an investment package to help those who are set to lose their jobs and create new business opportunities in South Cumbria."
