Bill Cash MP raises concerns of British Ceramic Confederation with Government

Press release 02/12/09

Further to a briefing from the British Ceramic Confederation, relating to specific difficulties faced by the Heavy Clay Industry, particularly under EU emissions trading rules, Bill Cash MP said:
 
“I have written to the Government over the issues raised by the Confederation. In doing so, I have raised their summary of priorities to help ensure the continued viability of the Heavy Clay Industry in the UK.
 
“In particular, I have raised the concerns with the Department for Business Innovation and Skills given that businesses are at risk and market distortions are likely. The Department for Work and Pensions have also been consulted because jobs are at risk.
 
“I have contacted the Treasury because income, corporation, energy tax revenues, unemployment costs are affected. I have raised the issue with the Department of Energy and Climate Change, given that the substitution of current products is likely with ones made inside or outside Europe with higher or unregulated carbon emissions.
 
“I have raised the issues as the concern of the UK Ceramic industries in relation to emissions legislation is very serious.”


Bill Cash backs Young Enterprise – and welcomes Council’s securing of funding to coach business leaders of the future

Press release: 19/10/2012

 
MP for Stone, Bill Cash, today said he backs the Young Enterprise charity and supports Staffordshire County Council’s recent decision – along with Stafford Borough Council – to fund Stafford and Stone’s Young Enterprise project.
 
The national Business & Education Charity, which launched its 2012 - 2013 campaign in September, aims to educate young people about enterprise and business in order to encourage the start up of new businesses and self-employment in the future. 
 
The funding will allow the project to run a number of exciting activities over the year. Teachers and business mentors will work with young people in the classroom around the skills and benefits of business, and help facilitate the start-up of small enterprises in the school. 
 
Most recently the project helped start the “Sock Tree Company”, from Alleynes High School which produces sock monkeys and went on to win area, county and regional awards.
 
Cash said:
 
“I attended an important event in my constituency this year at which young people from Alleynes school in Stone were selling produce, based on proper commercial principles.
 
“They were learning key enterprise skills and it is wonderful that young people are given the opportunity and skills to learn about business in this way. 
 
“Our young entrepreneurs are tomorrow’s business leaders, and with their determination, will provide the very engine of growth for the future which is required in our national and local economy in Staffordshire.”
