EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, and NDI, the trade body representing companies involved in the defence sector, have urged MPs to back the Successor submarine programme at a vote in the House of Commons on Monday 18 July 2016.

The Successor programme will not only be key for the nation’s defences, but will also be a critical commitment to future UK manufacturing success. It is a major national investment programme of a scale similar to HS2 (£55.7billion) and represents a major opportunity for the steel industry in addition to the UK defence supply sector and wider manufacturing.

The submarine supply chain involves up to 1,000 companies in every region of England, Scotland and Wales and Successor will provide them with valuable long-term business opportunities.
