Paddy Ashdown pushes Government to answer question on the future of tooling equipment at GKN on first day back in the New Year


Lord Paddy Ashdown has secured the first question in the House of Lords for a Government Minster to answer the question:

“to ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they intend to retain the Government-owned tooling and jigs for the A159 Wildcat helicopter within the United Kingdom; and if so, whether these will be installed in the main Leonardo site.”

The Question will be answered on the first day the House of Lord returns from the New Year on Monday 9 January at 2.30pm.
