[Katy Clark in the Chair] — Manufacturing and Engineering
Jack Lopresti (Filton and Bradley Stoke, Conservative)
I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this important debate. On apprenticeships, is he aware that 30% of the senior management at Rolls-Royce, which has a large facility in my constituency, started their professional lives as apprentices? That demonstrates what a fantastic career people can carve out in manufacturing. It also clearly demonstrates social mobility in action.
