"Well it's obviously good news that they're on the short list but clearly it's absolutely vital though that Bombardier win this contract because without it it will potentially spell the end of British train manufacturing.
"Let's not forget as a result of the Thameslink decision 1400 jobs have been lost not to mention the countless thousands other jobs in the supply chain as a consequence of those going."
"So it's absolutely vital that we win this contract for Derby and for British manufacuring, it's really really important and I hope tht the government make the right decision this time, they made the wrong call over Thameslink they need to do the right thing on this occassion".
CHRIS WILLIAMSON MP, DERBY NORTH
