Jack Lopresti MP visits Hitachi site in Stoke Gifford

Jack Lopresti MP joined Keith Jordan, Managing Director at Hitachi Rail Europe with his senior site staff and local Councillors to see the progress on construction of the company's new Train Maintenance Centre in Stoke Gifford. The superstructure of the main maintenance building which started in August 2013 is nearing completion and the £80 million facility should be finished by the end of 2015.

 

Once completed, the modern depot will comprise a maintenance building with two full-length internal roads, office and staff accommodation space, stabling and servicing roads, and a carriage wash plant. The facility will serve as one of Hitachi Rail Europe's maintenance facilities for the new Great Western Main Line rolling stock it is building as part of the Government's £5.8bn Intercity Express Programme.

 

Jack Lopresti MP said, 'It was very interesting to see the progress made so far in the construction of this state of the art facility. I am pleased that Hitachi has today reconfirmed to me their commitment to filling as many jobs as possible from the local work force, including apprentices. They are very keen to develop strong links with local educational establishments, engaging young people with the fantastic opportunities offered by a career in engineering."

Baroness Hayman: My Lords, I think the House would not thank me for entering into that particular argument at this stage of the evening. I simply ask: where was the corporate memory in all of this? The noble Lord, Lord Lang of Monkton, described the change in the role of Lord Chancellor as an object lesson in how not to make changes. I think that it has a rival in this current situation. Perhaps I could just...

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: My Lords, I am grateful to all noble Lords for being so timely in the way they concluded the Question for Short Debate and for the co-operation of the Opposition Front Bench, which will make it possible for the House to avoid adjourning during pleasure. We may now move seamlessly from the Question for Short Debate into the rest of the business for today. Before we resume our consideration of...
