Oral Questions: Business Innovations and Skills

Neil Parish MP raised in the House of Commons the importance of apprenticeships in Devon with the Minister for Skills and Enterprise.

Neil Parish (Tiverton and Honiton) (Con): The building of Hinkley C will create a huge amount of employment in and around not only Somerset but Devon. Apprenticeship schemes will certainly work very well when it comes to building a power station.

The Minister for Skills and Enterprise (Matthew Hancock): I agree with my hon. Friend, and I pay tribute to Bridgwater college, which has put an awful lot of effort into ensuring that we build up the courses that will provide us with new nuclear skills.
