Lucy Powell responds to reports of notice of administration at Edinburgh Woollen Mill

Lucy Powell MP, Shadow Minister for Business and Consumers, commenting on reports that Edinburgh Woollen Mill has filed a notice to appoint administrators affecting 24,000 workers, said:

“Yet another mass redundancy announcement underlines once again that our high streets are hanging by a thread.

“We cannot be numb to news like this despite its frequency. It means tens of thousands of people will now be very worried about their future.

“The Government’s sink or swim approach to businesses and jobs risks many more people joining them.”
