Wrexham has led the way on the UK's successful vaccine rollout with Wockhardt making the AstraZeneca vaccine 'jab-ready'. With excellent education facilities too, Wrexham should be at the forefront of the Government's women and girls in STEM strategy.
At Women & Equalities questions today, I raised this with the Minister.
Read the question and answer below:
Wockhardt in Wrexham made the AstraZeneca vaccine ready, setting the scene for Wrexham to be at the forefront of opportunities. Does the Minister agree that now is the time to encourage young people, including women, into STEM opportunities, and that Wrexham, with Glyndŵr University and Coleg Cambria, is just the place to do that?
Answer, Alex Burghart (Minister for Apprenticeships and Skills):
It looks like I shall be going to Wrexham as well. I am delighted to say that, under this Government, women and girls are driving the STEM revolution that is powering the new economy.
