My hon. Friend will know that, at its heart, our modern Industrial Strategy will be about ensuring everyone has the opportunity to improve their skills, particularly through reforming technical education. Investing in skills and ensuring people have the right information to make choices on their career options in all parts of the country, is one of the most powerful things we can do to boost individual earning power and business productivity.
