Hull MP reacts to Northpoint Morrisons closure

Hull North MP Diana Johnson has responded to news that the Morrisons store at Hull North’s Northpoint in Bransholme is one of ten to close.

Hull North MP Diana Johnson said: "Given the lack of good full-time jobs in the Hull area, especially in relation to the number of job-seekers chasing them, it's worrying that Morrisons at Northpoint is to close.

"The process on what will happen to jobs at the store will now start, but this is clearly bad news for Northpoint and the Hull area.

"It shows that in our area the economic recovery remains fragile and is held back by the spending power taken out of our local economy since 2010. We already have a problem with the loss of retail jobs and empty shops in Hull and we've lost major players such as Comet in recent years."
