He outlined how jobs at the factory – which employs some 4,000 people – could be at risk if there was a ‘leave’ vote in June.

Addressing 250 staff during a question and answer session he was asked about his commitment to defence budgets, the new deal he had brokered with the EU and he also announced more funding would be sought from the EU for winter flood victims.

Asked by Blog Preston about the disparity in council funding cuts between the north and the south, he answered how the ability to set business rates would counter funding cuts.
