UK: Industry 'Stuck In A Timewarp', Action Needed
Some of the UK's apparel, footwear and textile industry is stuck in a time warp, according to Manchester businessman, John Lewis.

Mr Lewis will speak on behalf of Skillfast-UK, the sector skills council for apparel, footwear and textiles, at a reception at the TUC conference in Blackpool on 10 September.
