I’m immensely proud for Goole and for Yorkshire in getting a brand new £200 million factory to build new underground trains. This factory is to be built by Siemens.

As I said, I’m very proud for Goole and good luck to them, I hope it all goes well.

What I can’t understand is, why go to Goole when there is a perfectly good engineering works already standing in York - the Carriage Works, Holgate Road?

It would surely be an immense saving for Siemens to use this facility instead of building a new one?
