That this House notes the October 2017 announcement of job losses at BAE Systems sites in northern England, such as Brough and Warton; further notes that one reason given for this was the reduction in the level of production of the Hawk aircraft; believes that this will be devastating to local communities and the families of those who have lost their job; further believes that the Government could have saved those jobs by ordering nine new Hawk aircraft for the Red Arrows; further notes the loss of high skilled jobs in other industries such as steel; believes that creating and maintaining secure, well-paid and productive jobs should be the centre of the Government's industrial strategy; and calls on the Government to act to bring more well-paid, high skilled jobs to northern England and to help to retrain those who will lose their job.
