Ten Minute Rule Bill

Labour MP Catherine McKinnell has proposed a Ten Minute Rule Bill requiring "successful bidders for high-value public contracts to demonstrate a firm commitment to skills training and apprenticeships".

Introducing the bill on 14 September 2010 Ms McKinnell said expanding access to apprenticeships can "create a more tailor-made training system where employers, who know their industries better than anyone, identify the skills that are needed and train their apprentices to suit it".
