SHADOW Secretary of State for Work and Pensions and Shadow Minister for Women Theresa May joined Weaver Vale Tory hopeful Graham Evans in a visit to Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus.
The former Conservative Party chairman joined her party’s Weaver Vale candidate to meet entrepreneurs who are generating new technologies.
Mr Evans said, “I am proud to have Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus (DSIC) located within Weaver Vale.
“Theresa and I visited several new technology companies who are working in the bio-medical, envirionmental and communication sectors.
“All of the directors commented on how difficult it is to raise capital from the banks at the moment”.
He added: “At the election, voters will face a clear choice on the economy. Five more years of Gordon Brown will put the recovery at risk. David Cameron and the Conservatives will get Britain working by boosting enterprise.
“We will cut corporation tax rates, abolish taxes on the first 10 jobs created by new businesses, promote green jobs, and get people off welfare and into work.
“This week, Britain’s leading business organisations backed Conservative calls to act now on debt to get the economy moving. Sir James Dyson publishes his report on how a Conservative government can make Britain Europe’s leading generator of new technology.
“In it are the ideas that will help us create new, high-paying jobs right across our country. Dyson is one of Britain’s biggest success stories and Sir James Dyson knows better than any bureaucrat how you start a business, build it up and start selling to the world – and he’s put that knowledge into this blueprint for creating a generation of innovation and enterprise.
“From day one of a Conservative government we’ll encourage the entrepreneurs who will start the businesses which will drive the industries which will create the high-paying jobs this country needs.
“The talent and the ideas are out there in Britain, the opportunities for trade are out there in the world – now we just need a Conservative government to get Britain open for business.”
