Tiverton Labour election contender calls for “highly skilled, rewarding and better paid jobs”

Responding to the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership’s remarks about investment in the South West, Peter Hill Labour’s contender for Tiverton West division in May’s council election, said

“There is an over emphasis on bringing more tourism to the South West. Unfortunately tourism brings lower paid service sector jobs and like all of the service sector has proven to be fragile during the pandemic. Fortunately the South West has always been a highly productive area in terms of food and drink production plus manufactured goods. These are the industries we should build on, to bring highly skilled, rewarding and better paid jobs to the region.“

Peter Hill will be the Labour Party candidate for Tiverton West, and is director of a major local employer and exporter of speciality manufactured goods
