Dr. Cable was speaking at a manufacturing summit at the Floral Pavilion as part of the International Festival for Business – which is estimated to generate £100 million for the UK economy.

Speaking at the summit, Vince Cable said:

 “The North West is the UK’s biggest concentration of manufacturing and it makes me enormousely proud to see Halewood go from a national joke to one of the world’s best car plants.

“What’s holding us back is that companies are still unable to get finance and the skill gap at all stages which could potentially cripple industry. New Trailblazer schemes and colleges will help to address this problem.” (Source: Liverpool Echo)

I was very pleased that Vince Cable took the time out of his busy schedule to meet with me in New Brighton.  How we support local businesses and create local jobs is something I’m campaigning on ahead of the General Election.  It was good to discuss with Vince how Liberal Democrat policies and the Government can help places like New Brighton thrive.”
