York Press column – Government must deliver on growth to maintain trust

There is no point pretending last week’s heavy by-election losses do not send a serious message to the government. Defeated in both a traditionally very ‘safe’ rural West Country seat and urban West Yorkshire, my party is clearly struggling to retain public confidence across a diverse swathe of communities.

Julian welcomes Nestle announcements on new jobs for young people

November 15, 2013

Julian has expressed his delight at the news that Nestle will be creating nearly 2000 new jobs over the next three years specifically for young people, with the company’s site in York set to benefit.

The announcements are part of Nestlé’s impressive European Youth Employment Initiative, in which the firm are trying to help 20,000 people across Europe under the age of 30 find employment by 2016.

On the good news, Julian said:

“I’m absolutely delighted! It shows that Nestlé are investing not only in the city but in its skills base as well, which is so important, and that sends a really strong and encouraging message out there that the economy not only locally in York and across Yorkshire is improving but also across the country. I think it’s so important that companies like Nestle work closely with local colleges and schools to really improve the local skills base and this demonstrates quite clearly that they are doing exactly that.”
