Liz’s latest column for the Leicester Mercury

In my Leicester Mercury column this month, I talk about Leicester’s new Space Park – which will bring together the University of Leicester’s world leading space science and research with industry to seize the potential of this sector and create more than 3,000 high skill, high value jobs.

For the Space Park to reach the next stage of development, it requires around £30m of Government funding.

Investing this money could make a real difference here in Leicester and across the East Midlands. That is why I will be pressing the Chancellor to back our Space Park in the upcoming budget and Government Spending Review.
