Nice to have an MP (from any party) actually doing something for our industry – thanks Mr Jenrick MP.

House of Commons Transcript below:

T2. [907165] Robert Jenrick (Newark) (Con): Tomorrow I will visitAbbott and Co. of Newark, a fourth-generation local business that has been manufacturing boilers and fittings for British vessels flying the red ensign since HMS Warrior in the 1860s. What more are the Government doing to support the maritime sector given its importance to the economy?

22 Jan 2015 : Column 357

The Minister of State, Department for Transport (Mr John Hayes): I have been maritime Minister for a relatively short time in which we have developed a maritime skills strategy and a maritime growth plan. There are those, tinged by the melancholy of what is past, who do not believe that our future can be as bright. I believe, imbued with the spirit of Nelson, that our island nation’s seafaring future can be just as glorious as its past.
