Robert Halfon welcomes announcement that Colindale facilities will relocate to Harlow

Robert Halfon said:

‘For the last five years I have been campaigning hard to relocate the labs of Public Health England from Salisbury and Colindale to Harlow, and I am delighted to reveal that this campaign continues to be a success.

Following on the Chancellor George Osborne’s announcement in September that the Salisbury PHE labs will indeed be moving to our town, today’s Autumn Statement revealed that also the Colindale facilities will relocate to Harlow as well.

The relocation of the Public Health England facilities from Colindale to Harlow is the most exciting thing to happen to Harlow in a generation. It will bring up to 2,300 jobs and £400 million worth of investment to our town.

Public Health England’s chief executive Duncan Selbie announced that the move will provide “world-leading scientists world-class facilities in a region with the greatest concentration of academic and commercial expertise in life sciences.”

In his announcement, Mr Osborne stated that the new facilities in Harlow will include a “leading centre for research, health improvement and protection” and that they would enable the “continued development of world-leading work on international health threats such as Ebola.’’
