Bassetlaw MP Welcomes HS2 Manufacturing Commitment for Sheffield City Region

Bassetlaw MP John Mann has welcomed the commitment he received from the Secretary of State for Transport that manufacturing bases in the Sheffield City Region will be encouraged to compete for the contracts for HS2.

John Mann last week questioned the Secretary of State Patrick McLoughlin in the House of Commons on the need to ensure that the Sheffield City Region, with its significant rail manufacturing secures work from the HS2 development.

 

John Mann said “I welcome the agreement I received from the Transport Secretary that manufacturing companies in our area will be encouraged to work together to secure work from HS2.”

 

Mann continued “Sheffield City Region contains many superb rail manufacturers and it’s vital that this project is made by British workers in British based companies.”
