FYLDE welcomed a very special guest last week – The Prime Minister.

Mr Cameron was at BAE Systems Warton as part of a series of visits around the country supporting apprenticeship schemes.

It followed an invitation from Fylde MP Mark Menzies to visit BAE Warton, the area’s biggest employer, to see firsthand the work taking place.

The PM met with senior BAE Systems personnel, but also had time for a talk with a number of people on the apprenticeship scheme and a chat with local journalists.

It follows the PM’s announcement during National Apprenticeship Week delivering a new round of Government funding to help deliver the world class skills firms need to drive growth.

Mark Menzies, MP for Fylde, welcomed the Prime Minister’s visit.

He said: “The Prime Minister has been true to his word and taken up my invitation to come and see the world class site at Warton.

“In visiting the site, he has shown his commitment to our defense sector, in a way that his Labour predecessors had not.

“I was especially impressed by his extensive knowledge of the issues surrounding BAE systems, notably with regard to export deals for Typhoon.

“I support the PM’s message that technical excellence is as highly valued as academic prowess, and I believe the apprentices at BAE Systems, some of whom he met, represent the very best that Britain has to offer.”
