Job Losses at Equitable Life & Lloyds GroupNovember 23, 2009
Commenting on today’s announcements from Equitable Life and Lloyds Group, Aylesbury MP David Lidington said:
“This is devastating news for employees and their families and for the town’s economy.
“I have talked to senior executives at both Equitable and Lloyds. They have assured me that they will do all that they can to advise and support staff. I shall expect them to live up to those promises and, for my own part, stand ready to help constituents who now face losing their jobs in any way I can.
“I have also talked to the District and County Councils and to SEEDA about the need for an urgent plan of action to attract new employers to Aylesbury.
“The government has designated Aylesbury as a growth area. It makes no sense at all to build thousands of new homes unless you plan for new jobs at the same time. I shall be pressing Ministers to make sure that government departments and agencies now do their utmost to deliver the jobs that Aylesbury needs.”
