On Friday 5 March, Cotswold MP Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, will visit Watsonian-Squire, a leading manufacturer and exporter of motorcycle sidecars since 1912.  Along with being the constituency Member of Parliament for Watsonian-Squire, Mr Clifton-Brown is also the Shadow Minister for International Trade and Development, with responsibility for supporting British Exporters.
In advance of the visit Mr Clifton-Brown said:  “The number of people employed in the manufacturing sector has fallen from 4.53 million in 1997, to 2.62 million in 2009 and more companies have gone bust in Labour’s recession than in any other recession since records began.  I am delighted that a company such as Watsonian-Squire has survived through these difficulties.”
“This visit is particularly relevant beyond my constituency work as through my frontbench role as part of Ken Clarke’s Shadow Business Team I am committed to getting Britain back to making products and supporting those who already do.  Through my specific responsibilities I know how vital British exporters will be in helping our Country recover from recession.  Watsonian-squire clearly has an abundance of knowledge in both these fields.”
