An early bid for the Aerospace Technology Institute

I have today written the Department for Business Innovation and Skills making an early bid for the Aerospace Technology Institute which was announced in the budget earlier this year, to be located in or around the constituency.

The North West, and Lancashire in particular has a great industrial base in defence and aerospace manufacturing on which to build, and I believe it would be an endorsement of the region and if the government are serious about rebalancing the economy, then the heart of east Lancashire would be a priority site.
