On Thursday 20 November, Kevan visited the Boeing UK sites at Farnborough and Fleet as part of his Industry and Parliament Trust Fellowship programme on the aerospace sector.
Kevan said, “I am very pleased to be here at Boeing today to see both the Portal and the International Training Centre. I am over half way through my IPT Fellowship and I have visited some very interesting organisations so far, and today was no exception. I am looking forward to visiting Boeing again in the New Year to find out more about their UK based operations in support of the RAF’s Chinook.”
David Pitchforth, vice president and managing director of Boeing Defence UK Ltd added: “Kevan was very enthusiastic about the work we do here and we were delighted to host the Shadow Defence Minister today. At Boeing, we are very keen to maintain a healthy dialogue with all Parliamentarians and this visit has helped to cement that relationship. I look forward to engaging further with the IPT’s Fellowship Programme so that we can continue to bring Parliamentarians and industry closer together.”
