The Rt Hon Dr Vince Cable MP, Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills visited the new Hinckley Hub to hear about annual savings for the tax payers and job creation in the looal area.
The new Hub on Rugby Road houses Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council and Job Centre Plus, the Police and the Leicestershire County Council are soon to share the facilities as well.
Leader of the Council, Stuart Bray said "People living in the Hinckley & Bosworth area will not only benefit from having these services under one roof but the local tax payers will also save at least £75,000 a year. This will help keep this council as one of the lowest council tax authorities in the country".
As well as taking an interest in the Hinckley Hub Dr Cable welcomed the news that Hinckley & Bosworth were at the centre of creating 1000's of new jobs for local people.
Cllr Michael Mullaney said "Despite the economic mess left behind by Labour, we have managed to invest in business, jobs and apprenticeships to help people get back to work
"The Enterprise Zone at MIRA on the A5 near Hinckley is bringing thousands of jobs to our area and the new DPD site on Sketchley rook will be bringing about a 1000 more jobs to the area, and Bosworth has had one of the biggest increases in apprenticeships in the country over the last few years."
Vince Cable said "Liberal Democrats, both locally and nationally, are building a strong economy and a fairer society where everyone can reach their potential.
"At the heart of that is job creation. The Lib Dems want to create another million jobs and double the number of businesses that take on apprenticeships. The Lib Dems at Hinckley & Bosworth are leading the way by creating local opportunities for this to be achieved."
