Closure Of Teesside Evening Gazette Offices

EDM number 2515 in 2007-08, proposed by Ashok Kumar on 18/11/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Employment and Press.

That this House is concerned by the proposal of the Teesside Evening Gazette, as administered by the Trinity Mirror Group, to shut their offices in Redcar, Stockton and Guisborough; opposes the proposal to make a number of editorial staff redundant; notes that this will result in many parts of Teesside being under-represented in the media and could therefore cause a decline in local news coverage in the area; and requests the Trinity Mirror Group to reconsider its decision.

This motion has been signed by a total of 12 MPs.
