Statement – Banham Poultry

27th August 2020

It’s worrying times in Attleborough as Banham Poultry is asked to shut down a large part of its site in response to an outbreak of Coronavirus – to prevent a wider outbreak amongst workers both there and across Norfolk.

That’s why I am in close contact with the company, local councils, Public Health England and Government Ministers and officials to push for:

  • A rapid Track and Trace operation to contain the outbreak and avoid a wider lockdown
  • Compensation to help Banham Poultry, their suppliers and other companies in the farming and food processing sector take tough steps to protect the rest of us
  • Help for vulnerable staff

As non-essential shops reopen their doors this week, it is vital that we do all we can to shop with confidence and support our local Norfolk economy.
