The Labour Party's jobs and growth caucus will pay a flying visit to Whanganui and South Taranaki tomorrow.

MPs Grant Robertson, David Clark, Clare Curran and Clayton Cosgrove will kick off their visit to the city meeting mayor Annette Main and deputy-mayor Hamish McDouall at 10am before spending an hour with Whanganui Chamber of Commerce president Raewyn Overton-Stuart and some other chamber members.

There will be lunch and a media briefing between 12.30pm and 2pm before the trio meets with Whanganui and Partners representatives. Their visit rounds off with discussions with tourism operators and members of Visit Whanganui.

Meanwhile, Hawera will be the focus of MPs David Cunliffe, Stuart Nash and Megan Woods in South Taranaki.

They will start with a visit to an Eltham light engineering firm that produces components for automotive, agricultural, marine, engineering and utility industries in New Zealand and around the world. That's followed by a walk through Hawera's shopping centre before touring the Croucher and Crowder engineering and manufacturing plant before they round out their visit meeting with South Taranaki mayor Ross Dunlop and councillors.
