In January, Prime Minister David Cameron paid his fourth visit to Liverpool in 12 months. He was joined by Lord Heseltine and Liverpool born Tesco Chief Executive Sir Terry Leahy to discuss ways of boosting the region’s economy.
The Prime Minister discussed the £1.4bn Regional Growth Fund, the newly formed Local Enterprise Partnership and met with local business leaders.
Mr Cameron said “We are saying to people – if you’ve got an idea to bring investment and wealth to your area, the £1.4bn regional growth fund is there to help make those good ideas happen.”
The Prime Minister added “New Local Enterprise Partnerships, coalitions of business, councils and communities, are already working with business leaders like Terry Leahy to get big local projects off the ground to boost regional growth.”
Conservative spokesperson for Woolton and Gateacre Adam Marsden was delighted to see the Prime Minister back in the City. Adam said “It’s clear that David Cameron, Lord Heseltine and the government are fully committed to improving the Region’s economy and supporting our City. This is great news for Liverpool.”
