• Irish businesses investing in St Helens

    I hosted businesses from across the UK and Ireland at the British Irish Chamber of Commerce annual dinner in Westminster and talked about ESB’s significant investment in St Helens. Strong trading and business ties between the islands is of great economic importance to both countries.

    Greengate Energy Recovery Facility in St Helens is a shining example of the benefits these close ties bring. Pilkington and Irish-owned ESB Asset Development have jointly developed a facility bringing local jobs and boosting our economy.

    I will continue to help build strong ties between our businesses in the UK and Ireland and use them to help benefit our local economy in St Helens.
