MP for Bristol East criticises decision to close Remploy factory

Remploy in Bristol
29 disabled people will be made redundant when the factory closes

Kerry McCarthy, the MP for Bristol East, has said Government's decision to close Bristol's Remploy Factory in St Philips is 'cold, calculating and cowardly'. It will make around 29 disabled people redundant. 36 of Remploy's 54 factories are expected to close this year.
