EMERSONS Green has been in the national spotlight as the general election campaign gets under way in earnest this week.
Prime Minister David Cameron and Chancellor George Osborne chose the Bristol & Bath Science Park as the venue for the launch of the Conservatives' policy on tax on Easter Monday.
The next day Labour's leader Ed Miliband held a question and answer session at the National Composites Centre for employees and other invited guests.
Emersons Green is in the marginal constituency of Kingswood, which pundits say will see a close result between Tory Chris Skidmore, who has been the MP for the past five years, and Labour's Jo McCarron.
Both major parties brought their battle buses to the area and took the opportunity to rally support.
Mr Cameron and Mr Osborne gave speeches on “Money Back Monday”, emphasising their aim for people to be able to keep more of the money they earn.
Mr Miliband answered questions on a range of issues including supporting young people, Europe, the NHS, ending zero-hours contracts, and immigration.
He praised the innovative work of the NCC.
