Helen uses a question to the Communities and Local Government Minister to promote Thorn Lighting in Spennymoor. 

Helen asked Mr Jones:

"Brexit does give us the opportunity to control public procurement, so when the Minister is talking to local authorities about what kind of LED lighting to purchase, will he encourage them to buy lights from Thorn in Spennymoor in my constituency"

Mr Jones responded to support the use of LED lights as "one way of not using as much energy as our current street lights generally do" and agreed that councils should "seek to procure goods and services from UK firms".
