John Denham MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on the news that David Cameron personally phoned Pfizer last month, said:

“This is a huge personal snub for David Cameron. He telephoned Pfizer and the biggest pharmaceutical companies encouraging them in his own words to innovate, invest and employ people in the UK. But the following month Pfizer announced they are leaving their research site in Kent and cutting more than 2,000 jobs.”
