9:31am Thursday 25th October 2012 in News
BURNLEY MP Gordon Birtwistle has presented his first Bill to the House of Commons, calling for better career advice for youngsters aged 12 to 16.
He said: “It was great, if a little nerve-wracking, to do my first ten-minute rule bill, but I chose an issue which I am passionate about.
“Good careers advice is essential to ensuring that students leave school with the knowledge and skills that are relevant to the careers they wish to undertake."
