AN MP has launched a campaign to bring more jobs to his constituency.
Dewsbury MP Shahid Malik wants Kirklees Council to shift office-based posts to the town.
He was joined by local retailers and residents as he officially launched the Jobs 4 Dewsbury campaign this week.
Mr Malik said: “The presence of several hundred jobs in the centre of town would do wonders for the local economy and encourage people living in the Dewsbury area to work closer to home.
“Kirklees employees win, the local traders win and, in turn, so do the local people.”
