Fareham Labour Party has expressed concern and regret at the devastating news that 229 people will lose their jobs after Segensworth based wholesaler Palmer & Harvey went into administration.
Labour spokesperson Richard Ryan said “The loss of these jobs is very sad and doubly so at this time of year. Any job losses will impact on the local economy and I hope that the administrators will be able to save at least some of these much needed jobs. Action should be taken to find new employment for all those affected as soon as possible. I’m pleased to see the workforce’s union USDAW is meeting with the administrators to reduce the number of redundancies to a minimum.”
