Mark raises Rugby’s manufacturing centre with Prime Minister

Mark Pawsey has used Prime Minister’s Questions to praise the work of Rugby’s Manufacturing Technology Centre, and hail the resurgent manufacturing sector, including Jaguar Land Rover and Rolls Royce. The Prime Minister agreed, saying that it was important that the recovery was balanced, affecting all sectors and areas of the country.

Speaking afterwards, Mark said:

‘I was glad to ask the Prime Minister about manufacturing in Rugby. I was good to hear from the Prime Minister that he recognises the recovery must be for all. We do not just want to overcome the mess of the 2008 recession, we want to build a strong economy, that can flourish for years and decades to come.’

Mark commented:

‘I was pleased to visit the Manufacturing Technology Centre last week, with the Chancellor, George Osborne. It is an impressive and important centre, and just one example of the excellent work being done in the manufacturing sector in Rugby. I also raised with the Prime Minister the recent successes of Jaguar Land Rover and Rolls Royce.’

Mark concluded:

‘The recovery is underway: more people are in work, and businesses are better supported. However, there is still much more work to do. The good news we are seeing all over the country is not a reason for complacency, but it is an encouragement that this Government’s long term economic plan is working, and helping out businesses and families in Rugby and elsewhere.’
