First tonight there are claims that businesses in Fenland could be

:00:09.:00:12.

missing out on tens of thousands of pounds of support because

:00:13.:00:14.

the Local Enterprise Partnership is targetting more affluent

:00:15.:00:16.

The local MP Stephen Barclay says it must be made more accountable

:00:17.:00:22.

A company with a multi-million pound turnover, these are destined to

:00:23.:00:43.

become high-tech MRI scanners. They are still winning orders. One to

:00:44.:00:50.

help the commission Sellafield. But they say like a funding from the

:00:51.:00:54.

enterprise partnership is hindering their expansion plans. Much of what

:00:55.:00:58.

we do ultimately result in money of the pockets of employees that goes

:00:59.:01:04.

into the local community, all of the local shops and services ultimately

:01:05.:01:08.

the growth in this business. We have the growth in this business. We have

:01:09.:01:13.

a terrific opportunity to turn this into a very substantial business

:01:14.:01:19.

over the next few years. We have had very little support, sadly. The

:01:20.:01:23.

enterprise partnership at the heart of all of this is based here and it

:01:24.:01:29.

aim is to bring inward investment and funding to help businesses. That

:01:30.:01:33.

works across eight different counties with the aim of trying to

:01:34.:01:36.

bring in more jobs across the hall of the area. There are concerns in

:01:37.:01:44.

terms of major projects, like high-speed rail in the a 47 which

:01:45.:01:48.

appear to be making no movement whatsoever when schemes with a

:01:49.:01:51.

weaker business case elsewhere in the county are being progressed by

:01:52.:01:57.

the partnership and then as a lack of transparency as to how they're

:01:58.:02:00.

reaching those decisions and why they are pushing schemes in the

:02:01.:02:03.

here. Infrastructure delivery to here. Infrastructure delivery to

:02:04.:02:07.

whatever part of the county takes time and I think that is the

:02:08.:02:13.

reality. We understand that local people feel they need it now and

:02:14.:02:17.

that is to the rest of economic area. Can you understand why they

:02:18.:02:23.

feel they are not being helped? I understand why the feel they have

:02:24.:02:27.

been forgotten but other areas will feel the same. Companies here say

:02:28.:02:32.

they will continue to expand but say the rate at which they can grow and

:02:33.:02:37.

grasp opportunities is dependent on support and hard cash.

:02:38.:02:41.

One person has died after a gas explosion and fire
