All political parties standing in Cornish seats should print their leaflets locally

I have today challenged all political parties putting forward candidates in Cornwall at the coming General Election to ensure that all their election leaflets are printed locally.

I can confirm – of course – that every single piece of MK literature for the General Election will be printed here in Cornwall. We believe it is important that, at this time, political parties should be supporting local printing businesses with their custom.

But is disappointing that some other parties are not having their printing work done in Cornwall.

In the St Austell and Newquay seat, I have come across Conservative leaflets printed in Bristol, London and Somerset, Liberal Democrat leaflets printed in Hampshire, Lincolnshire, London and Portsmouth, and a UKIP leaflet also printed in London.

By contrast, we are presently delivering a campaign newsletter across the constituency, which was printed in Lostwithiel.
