Cameron can’t just sit on the sidelines and watch high skilled jobs like these disappear. He has got to act - Murphy

Jim Murphy MP, Labour's Shadow Defence Secretary, commenting on reports about BAE job losses, said:

“This is devastating news for the workers and families in Humberside. This factory has produced aircraft continuously for longer than any other.

“I remember visiting Brough and being overwhelmed by the skill of the workforce. This will stun hundreds of families and an entire community.

“Surely now it is time for the UK Government to act. In recent weeks we have seen defence contracts go to France and South Korea. David Cameron can’t just sit on the sidelines and watch high skilled jobs like these disappear. He has got to act.

“This is a particular blow at a time of rising unemployment and slowing manufacturing growth. Labour’s defence industrial strategy has been replaced by this Government’s defence cuts. This shows why it is so important to have a strategy to support British industry.”
