Conservative leader David Cameron visits Ellesmere Port

CONSERVATIVE leader David Cameron visited an Ellesmere Port company as part of his General Election campaign.

Mr Cameron made a visit to fluid transport company, Pirtek, to speak to small businesses about what the Tories could do to help them, if voted into power.

The prospective Prime Minister enjoyed a tour of the building before hosting a question and answer session with business owners.

Mr Cameron said: “We desperately want to keep our manufacturing base going.

“Over the last decade, manufacturing has declined faster than it did in the 1980s. We argued for a long time that you needed a loan guarantee scheme to actually get the loans out into the businesses that needed them and I am delighted Vauxhall is now being helped.

“But we need more than just that to get us manufacturing again.

“We need more apprentices, we need technical colleges in our big cities, we need to make sure young people are studying the science, technology, engineering and mathematics subjects and we need better transport infrastructure because manufacturers need to move their goods around.”
