Rt Hon Hilary Benn MP visits Pilkington Leeds

Rt Hon Hilary Benn
On 20th May 2011 the Rt Hon Hilary Benn MP visited the Pilkington Leeds factory which supplies specialist Laminated and Fire products to the UK Glazing industry. 

He was given a guided tour of the factory and was able to see the manufacturing process first hand, as well as taking the opportunity to talk to several operations staff. 

Mr Benn was particularly interested to hear the efforts of Pilkington in securing work for the Window and Glazing industry within the Green Deal framework, safeguarding jobs nationally as well as reducing the UK’s CO2 emissions, and voiced his support for the campaign.
