Letter: Manufacturing figures - a slap in the face for the Brexit doom mongers

Date published: 11 January 2018

Dear Editor,

The latest official manufacturing figures released by the Office for National Statistics are great news for the country - and a slap in the face for the Brexit doom mongers.

They show a ten year high bolstered by the export of vehicles, boats, renewables and generally across the board.

So contrary to the ‘remainers’ moaning and their unfounded pessimism Great Britain PLC is alive and thriving and can continue to do so after we escape the shackles of the EU.

To ensure ongoing success there needs to be more government support and investment and greater access to more high quality apprenticeships as well as fairer access to government contracts for British SMEs.
