I have received numerous representation from the Hon. Member for Norfolk North regarding the future of manufacturing operations on the Unilever site in Norwich.

On 3 May I met the Chief Executive of New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership to discuss this issue. The Department has also been made aware of a potential application under the Rural Development Programme’s Growth Programme for funding to help set up a manufacturing and milling facility in Greater Norwich. However, an application has not so far been received.
