While the Lib Dems have got real action on pensions, local residents have been horrified to learn that Conservative-run Hampshire County Council has been investing cash Belfast’s Tesco, while rejecting to help local jobs in Andover!
CBRE Global Investors, acting on behalf of the County Council, has bought a £6.26m Tesco foodstore on Main Street in Limavady, with local businesses here continuing to struggle.
It is scandalous that when investment is so badly needed in Hampshire, our own County doesn’t just stand by, but actively invests elsewhere! Hampshire’s Pension Fund can and should be used to get high returns for Hampshire people.
Pension funds should be used to support local jobs and housing. Andover needs investment in jobs, and shops. When will the Conservative County Council start to back the Andover economy, with money for jobs, shops, services and homes for Andover residents?
Andover can’t afford any more Conservative waste and cuts!
