York Press column: All action ahead of Easter

It has been a jam-packed couple of weeks since my last column where I had an opportunity to reflect on the Chancellor’s Budget. I want to begin by highlighting the fantastic news that inflation has dropped to 3.4 per cent – the lowest in two and a half years. When the Prime Minister came to

Julian presses Minister on Government support for science and technology investment in York

July 12, 2022

This afternoon Julian questioned the Business Minister Greg Hands on the Government’s commitment to investment in the bioeconomy. It comes after Nottingham-based Azotic Technologies chose a site in Dunnington in Mr Sturdy’s constituency to be the location of a new facility in conjunction with the University of York, creating up to 30 new high skilled jobs in York.

Earlier this year Mr Sturdy visited the new Azotic site with the then science minister George Freeman to learn more about its pioneering BioYorkshire project. BioYorkshire is a partnership between the university, Fera Science and Askham Bryan College which aims to turn York and North Yorkshire into the UK’s First carbon negative region. 

After leaving the chamber Mr Sturdy said:

“I was pleased to hear the Minister reaffirm the Government’s commitment to investing in research and development as part of a long-term plan for clean growth both locally and nationally. I highlighted to him how fortunate we are in York to have world leading research institutions and businesses working side by side, using renewable biological resources to create greener products to minimise waste and reduce reliance on fossil fuels.

If the UK is to live up to its international climate change targets, then these are exactly the sort of projects that the Government needs to invest in, and I hope that the minister took this point away from our exchange today.”
