Stuart Anderson MP has spoken in Prime Minister’s Questions. On the 14th of October 2020, Stuart who is the Member of Parliament for Wolverhampton South West used the opportunity to ask the Prime Minister Boris Johnson to reconfirm his commitment to invest and level up in Wolverhampton, and to invite him to come and see the businesses in the constituency himself.
Stuart Anderson MP was pleased to take the opportunity to raise the profile of great businesses in his constituency which have been continuing to serve the community throughout these difficult times that we are currently facing. In particular, he mentioned the great work being done by GI’s Barbers and Baked In Tettenhall.
In response to Stuart’s question, the Prime Minister confirmed that the Black Country City Deal has just seen investment of £5.8 million and that the West Midlands Combined Authority has been awarded £66 million for projects across the area. This includes £15 million for the National Brownfield Institute.
Speaking after the event, Stuart Anderson MP said: “I was delighted to be able to take this opportunity to highlight the great work which local businesses have been doing during this incredibly challenging time. Local businesses like GI’s Barbers and Baked In Tettenhall are the backbone of our economy, and championing economic opportunities for all people is one of my key priorities to see Wolverhampton levelled up.”
Thank you. Mr. Speaker.
Will the Prime Minister join me in thanking the great businesses of Wolverhampton like Greg at GI’s Barbers and Baked in Tettenhall for continuing to serve the community in difficult times?
Would he also reconfirm his commitment to invest and level up Wolverhampton?
And when we've come through this stronger, can I invite him to come and see the businesses himself?
Well, I have happy memories, Mr. Speaker, of sampling some of the fair in Wolverhampton with My Honourable Friend
and I can tell him that the Black Country City Deal has just seen investment of £5.8 million
and that the West Midlands Combined Authority was just awarded £66 million pounds for projects across the area
including £15 million pounds for the National Brownfield Institute that is due to be located in Wolverhampton.
And Wolverhampton, Mr. Speaker, was the birthplace of the first Industrial Revolution
It is now teeming with opportunity.
