Commenting on the government’s recent decision by the government not to award freeport status to Port of Tyne and Port of Blyth, Tynemouth MP Alan Campbell said “It is hugely disappointing that the Government has not backed plans for a North East Freeport which would have helped secure the future of Port of Tyne and Port of Blyth and which was backed by Nissan.

This would have helped to create employment after the twin blows of COVID and Brexit but now the concern must be to avoid job displacement to Teesside. Once again there was nothing from the Government for communities north of Teesside which brings into question the Governments promises on levelling up.”
