Visit to North West Logistics, Altham

Last Friday I visited North West Logistics last week to discuss their plans for expansion and the work that they do in the UK and across Europe.

I'm always amazed at the diversity of employers and companies we have in Hyndburn and it's impressive to see how a firm in the constituency can be operating in Europe and looking to expand.

We discussed a number of things that I will be taking up with Ministers, in particular fuel expenses and how this affects competition with European operators and the issue of foreign hauliers operating in the UK beyond their permitted work.

I look forward to seeing how their expansion develops and supporting them in the borough.
