Dave Watts MP visits Pilkington Greengate

Dave Watts MP

On 19th November 2010 Dave Watts MP visited our Greengate Works in St Helens following the announcement that the UK5 float line would be reopening.

The St Helens North MP met with Phil Brown, Regulatory Marketing Manager and Gary Charlton, MD Building Products UK Upstream who demonstrated the considerable high-tech investments made at the facility which were supported by Regional Assistance Grants. Since the visit Mr Watts has assisted Pilkington to secure a meeting with the Minister for Climate Change, Greg Barker, to discuss the inclusion of glazing in the Green Deal.

Mr Watts also asked a question on the inclusion of double glazing in the Green Deal, during the second reading of the Energy Bill in the House of Commons.
