Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander heard first-hand about the challenges facing the window industry when he visited VEKA’s HQ in Burnley.
The Lib Dem MP, one of the most senior figures in the Government, toured the system supplier’s state-of-the-art factory and shared views on the Economy with VEKA MD Dave Jones, Sales & Marketing Director Colin Torley and Finance Director Graham Fitton.
“He was very frank about the public spending cuts and the Government’s belief that they are unavoidable,” said Dave Jones later.
“But he did accept that some of the cutbacks can leave many in our industry very vulnerable, especially those with a large stake in social housing.”
The visitor was in Burnley at the invitation of the town’s MP Gordon Birtwistle, who is his Parliamentary Private Secretary.
