Luke Pollard, MP for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport, joined the All Party Parliamentary Group on General Aviation (APPG-GA) to launch its new Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)’ Jobs and Skills working group, on Wednesday 23rd October.
Launched by the APPG-GA’s Ambassador Carol Vorderman, the STEM Jobs and Skills Working Group will educate Parliament and Government, carry out research and propose policy designed to further the aims of promoting high-tech STEM related aviation jobs throughout the UK.
Carol Voderman said:
“With the ever more advanced world which we are living in, there has never been a more important time to promote STEM Jobs and Skills. It is a necessity to ensure that the UK remains at the forefront of not only General Aviation but Aviation on the whole. I wholly support the STEM working Group and the APPG in advancing aviation and I look forward to working with them in the future.”
Luke Pollard MP said:
“I welcome the creation of the STEM Jobs and Skills working group. The aim of the working group to propose policy to further high-tech jobs is not only good for the economy of Plymouth Sutton and Davenport but also the protection and growth of UK aviation.
Re-opening Plymouth airport is one of my key transport campaigns for Plymouth and the far south west. ”
