Business Secretary promises consultation on giving Grimsby and Immingham docks freeport status

Andrea Leadsom was on the campaign trail

The Business Secretary says there'll be a consultation on whether to give Grimsby and Immingham Docks freeport status IF the Conservatives win the election. 

 Andrea Leadsom's been on the campaign trail in Grimsby and Lincoln.

She says the potential of a freeport deal would bring lower tax, and more innovation to the facilities.

She's also pledged the Tories will do more to promote green energy and praised Grimsby's offshore windfarm companies.
