MORE than 70 apprentices met Fareham MP Suella Fernandes at a reception in the House of Commons.
The apprentices, from some of Britain’s biggest aerospace, defence, security and space companies, attended the ADS Parliamentary Reception last week.
The event, organised by the trade organisation ADS Group, and sponsored by UTC Aerospace Systems, highlighted the contribution apprentices make to highly-skilled manufacturing industries.
Miss Fernandes said: ‘It was great to meet so many young engineers working towards highly-skilled and rewarding careers.
‘They are great ambassadors for the UK’s advanced manufacturing industries.’
