Liz questions Minister on protecting Leicester's space research status

Watch: The Government needs to protect Leicester’s status as a world leader in space research and engineering by urgently addressing the local jobs linked to the EU’s Galileo satellite programme and the free movement of scientists after Brexit

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.
