When it comes to generating high paid jobs in the Ipswich area, Freeport East is a very exciting project. As one of the government’s 8 new Freeports, I am very pleased that Freeport East will be on Ipswich’s doorstep, and I want the benefits of the Freeport to be realised by my constituents as soon as possible.
This morning in the chamber, I asked the Treasury for assurances that rocket boosters would be put under this project. I was happy to hear the Treasury tell me that they will be accelerating the Freeport projects, ensuring that the high skilled jobs come to our area as quickly as possible. I will be ensuring that the government does everything it can to propel Freeport East forwards and make these high-skilled jobs a reality for the people of Ipswich.
