Siobhan Baillie Stroud MP proved she would make an excellent bricklayer at a development in Stonehouse earlier today,

The MP took a turn at constructing a wall at the Great Oldbury development, Stroud, with the apprentices on site commenting how much better her handiwork was than the PM.

Siobhan was at the development today ahead of a campaign later this year to get more women into construction. A ‘skills’ bill will be put before parliament later this year and Boris Johnson said he will be ‘championing’ apprenticeships for girls.

SGS college that has sites in Gloucestershire and Filton in Bristol will be offering further education for young women to get into trades.

Boris Johnson said: “There are more women in construction that there ever has been before but it’s still not enough.

“I will be championing apprenticeships, particularly for girls and getting young women and girls into STEM subjects.

Siobhan added: “SGS College has a construction course so we will be flying the flag here. It will be about making further education to university education a priority.

Shed added: I'm really proud that the Prime Minister is leading on this.”
