Opposition Day — Require Larger Public Sector Contractors to Offer Apprenticeships — 12 Mar 2013 at 18:47
The majority of MPs voted against requiring firms winning public contracts worth over £1m to offer apprenticeships.
The motion rejected in this vote was:
- That this House
- notes National Apprenticeship Week, established by the previous Government, and held from 11 to 15 March 2013, which celebrates the value of apprenticeships, particularly in providing opportunities and developing skills;
- further notes the need to increase apprenticeship places; and therefore
- resolves that the Government uses the billions of pounds committed to public procurement to boost apprenticeships by requiring firms winning public contracts worth over £1 million to offer apprenticeship opportunities, implementing the recommendation of the Fifth Report of the Business, Innovation and Skills Committee, HC 83, on Apprenticeships.
