Statement on Coca-Cola's Announcement

Following today's announcement by Coca-Cola that they are proposing to close their manufacturing site in Milton Keynes, Mark has released the following statement: 

 

“This is very disappointing news. I know it will be a worrying time for the employees and their families.

I will be working closely with Coca-Cola over the coming year and keeping up to date with the consultation. It is important employees are kept informed and listened to throughout the process.

It will be of little comfort to those hearing the news today, but our economy in Milton Keynes remains strong and the fastest growing in the UK with new jobs being created every day.”
