Proposed Closure Of Trench (Uk) On Tyneside

EDM number 232 in 2010-12, proposed by Stephen Hepburn on 15/06/2010.
Categorised under the topic of Electricity.

That this House deplores the actions of Siemens in proposing to close Trench (UK) on Tyneside and transferring its production to France and Germany; notes that Trench (UK), which has 96 employees, has a healthy order book, is making good profits and is a world leader in manufacturing its high-tech product for the electricity supply sector; further notes that the reason Siemens is giving the workforce for the closure is based on out-of-date information; and calls on Siemens' senior management to look again at its proposals.

This motion has been signed by a total of 28 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
