Neil welcomes Philip Hammond, Chancellor of the Exchequer to the constituency

Neil welcomed the Rt Hon Philip Hammond MP, Chancellor of the Exchequer, to the Stroud Valleys and Vale recently.

He visited the newly opened Sartorius factory in Stonehouse- an excellent example of a modern, productive and innovative workplace with highly encouraging prospects. At the core of the Government's "Industrial Strategy" are the policies to support such business investment to deliver jobs, exports and local economic growth. Neil was pleased to be able to highlight the value of these important measures.
