Liz questions Universities Minister on protecting space research in Leicester

Leicester is a world leader in space research and engineering. We have specialists working with NASA and partners around the world, while our new Space Park is set to create 3,000 jobs. So on 18 July I asked the Universities Minister how the Government would be addressing the free movement of EU scientists during Brexit negotiations and what he would be doing to protect Airbus jobs in Leicester directly linked to the EU’s Galileo satellite programme.
