Gordon questions Government Minister over BAE job losses

Gordon has pressed the Government over the announced job losses at BAE Systems in Lancashire. BAE_Question.jpg

An emergency question was put down in the Commons by Gordon's colleague Mark Hendrick MP (Preston) about the announcement which could see almost 750 jobs lost at the Warton and Samlesbury sites.

In his question to the Business Minister Claire Perry, he said: "The job cuts at Warton and Samlesbury are twice what they were in November 2015, so it is not surprising that people in Blackpool and Fylde will be concerned.

"The supply chain has been mentioned. What specifically will the Minister and the Department do with buyers to ensure apprenticeships in supply chains are also supported, and that the Lancashire local enterprise partnership is given the support and resources it needs to support both BAE and the supply chain?"

In her reply to Gordon, the Minister said: "We stand by ready to understand any potential impact, once the scale of any job reductions is known, and to support the Lancashire local enterprise partnership and other companies in the area to process, cope and adapt to any changes."
