To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, at the planned timescale is for agreeing an aerospace sector deal; and if he will make a statement.
Answer (Richard Harrington)
We announced at Farnborough Airshow that Government would enter in to negotiations with the UK’s Aerospace Sector to agree a Sector Deal. Recognising that Aerospace is a leading sector in the UK, Ministers and Officials have been in negotiations with the sector since that time. We expect an ambitious Sector Deal to be agreed with industry in due course.
