Business Secretary Vince Cable
"The news of job losses at AgustaWestland will be upsetting for the individuals involved and the wider community in Yeovil."
"BIS is working with the company to help secure a long term future for the site by helping them to move in to civil helicopter work where there are strong opportunities for Growth. In July I announced £32 million of Government investment in AgustaWestland Yeovil to help introduce the civil AW169 aircraft and we hope that this will allow them to expand in the future."
