Greater focus needed for British manufacturing

Liberal Democrat Conference today [Sunday] passed a motion calling for further action to support and boost British manufacturing.

Commenting, Liberal Democrat BIS spokesperson, Gordon Birtwistle said:
“Liberal Democrats having been working hard in government to deliver a strong manufacturing sector in a stronger economy.
 
“Under the last Labour government the competitive concerns of this vital part of our economy were ignored.
 
“Vince Cable has made a vital start to help revitalise manufacturing, but we must not stop there. The Government must take an active role in supporting manufacturing. We need further rounds of the regional growth fund to help create a more geographically sustainable economy. And we need a renewed commitment to ensure new workers have the skills necessary to support a strong manufacturing sector.”
