All-Party Parliamentary Group for Textiles and Fashion: employment and visas for the UK garment manufacturing industry
The APPG for Textile and Fashion is bringing together leading manufacturers and policy makers to discuss the challenges and opportunities faced by the UK garment manufacturing industry, focusing on skills and labour.
The aim of the meeting is to advocate for a more inclusive Visa system, that recognises the specific needs of the industry in qualification requirements to address the shortage of qualified workers, and to ensure that growth is not limited by the lack of a skilled and qualified workforce.
The following data will be used anonymously, and will inform a position paper about the needs of the industry. If you do not have access to data for one or more of the questions, please answer with N/A.
The questionnaire closes on the 6th of October.
