On 7 March 2011, Conservative MP Laura Sandys led a debate on the future of the Pfizer site in Sandwich.
In February, the organisation announced the closure of its research facility in Sandwich, which employs 2,400 people, over the next two years.
The site conducts research and development on allergy and respiratory drugs, and it lays claim to some of the world's biggest medical discoveries, including the anti-impotence drug Viagra.
Pfizer said most staff would be made redundant, but it hoped to transfer several hundred positions to other UK sites or partner organisations.
The University of Kent has already expressed interest in using some of the site's facilities.
