Steven Parkhill, UKIP’s candidate for East Londonderry in the upcoming elections to the Northern Ireland Assembly has welcomed the announcement that Limavady company Seating Matters is creating a number of new jobs.
Mr Parkhill said: “It is great to see a local, highly innovative, family run business, Seating Matters going from strength to strength and being in a situation whereby they can recruit and expand their workforce.”
“Limavady is amongst the most deprived areas in Northern Ireland when it comes to investment from Invest NI, and has a higher unemployment rate of than most of the country with 4.5% of people unemployed, any news of jobs is a much needed boost for the town and surrounding area.”
“We find our greatest innovators and entrepreneurs within our small businesses. The businesses they start and grow will take us out of the economic turmoil we’ve suffered in recent years and back into the black. The burden of massive over-regulation and red tape by the European Union can be overwhelming for small firms, and off putting for those who wish to start a business.”
“Leaving the EU means we can increase our trade reach in the world’s growing and expanding markets, on our own, for ourselves, without being attached to an over-bureaucratic, failing EU market that dilutes our influence and produces relatively little bar low economic growth and high unemployment.”
“UKIP are leading the way when it comes to delivering a Britain free of over-bureaucratic EU influence, and creating a Britain which enables SME’s to be competitive in Britain and the global market.”
“Perhaps if the other parties are serious about creating jobs and getting our economy growing, they will get off the fence and join those of us on the Leave Campaign?”
