Lord Sugar debates the new funds for British Advance Manufacturing Supply Chain

Vince Cable recently announced the allocation of £125 million Advance Manufacturing Supply Chain Fund for British manufacturing.

Lord Sugar debated British manufacturing in the House of Lords calling for more support for British Manufacturing not just by the government but also by consumers.

In his address to the House of Lords on the 8th December, Sir Alan Sugar, highlighted two key points calling for the government to allocate some of its fund to finance incubator factories, left empty in industrial units, to help start up businesses to manufacture their products in the UK.

Lord Sugar was quoted as saying ” low cost merchandise can’t be manufactured (in the UK) but high quality can be” …

Remember when Made in Britain was a very proud statement for manufacturers… and I do believe that we are still capable of producing quality products in this country…”

He stated that the lack of patriotism from consumers could be addressed by a nationally recognised ‘Made in Britain’ logo which the government should ‘dip their hands in their pockets’ to fund.

Earlier 2011, a ‘Made in Britain’Marque was launched and profiled by Stoves, the renowned Aga manufacturers,  who conducted research and designed an updated British Marque – highlighted by Fashion Sussex.  Read more > http://fashionsussex.co.uk/new-made-in-britain-marque-for-manufacturers-in-brighton-hove-sussex-uk/
