 A NORTH Wales politician will this week get together with council leaders from two authorities to discuss ways of safeguarding a prime employment site.The region was dealt a massive jobs blow at the beginning of March when Indesit-Hotpoint announced it would be closing its Kinmel Park factory in Bodelwyddan. The company said falling demand and increased manufacturing costs had made the Denbighshire site unsustainable.On Friday Welsh Conservative AM Mark Isherwood will be meeting with officials from both Conwy and Denbighshire County Councils, together with other politicians, to discuss ways of protecting the principal employment site.   The meeting is being held at Bodlondeb in Conwy and has been called by leader of Conwy County Council. It is understood that of the 305 staff working at Indesit, 199 come from the county of Conwy.“I look forward to discussing this serious situation with both council leaders and other stakeholders to explore how, working together, we can safeguard this site as a key employment area,” said Mr Isherwood.“I am pleased to hear that both counties have committed to work together to attempt to ease the impact of recession and to jointly plan for economic stability.”  ENDS North Wales AM Mark Isherwood, Shadow Minister for Social Justice, Equality and Housing
