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. Much more can and should be done to improve productivity and profitability. And unless action is taken today, there could be no jobs and no industry tomorrow. Mr Lewis's company, Seven Seas Knitwear, supplies sweaters and cardigans to customers like the Arcadia Group. 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.
