UK: Chancellor of the Exchequer Tours London Container Terminal

The Port of Tilbury, London’s major port, recently welcomed the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rt Hon George Osborne MP, to open the new Tilbury Training Academy where students are learning the vital skills they need to be part of the workforce of the future.

The Chancellor was also taken on a tour of operations at the port and to see the outcome of the multimillion pound investment at London Container Terminal, one of the UK’s largest container terminals, which together with the rest of the port handled one million standard size containers (TEUs) in 2013.

Rt Hon George Osborne MP, Chancellor of the Exchequer, said: “Creating jobs and getting people into employment are central to building a stronger, more competitive economy. Government action is creating long-term training and career opportunities for hard-working people, and it is at places like the Tilbury Training Academy that young people will develop the skills they need to enter the workforce.”
