Public Affairs: Engineering brief for Politics Direct

The Royal Academy of Engineering (RAE) has enlisted Politics Direct to provide parliamentary support and ensure the profession is well represented on the policy agenda.

The agency is briefed with bolstering RAE's profile and generating speakers for the body's all-party parliamentary group on engineering, which acts as a forum for the exchange of information and views on the profession.

'We need to ensure everyone is aware of the impact engineering has on the quality of people's life and wealth creation,' said RAE director of comms Tom McLaughlan. 'We hope Politics Direct will generate a freshness to our approach.'

The group will in forthcoming months debate the profession's stance on energy policy, the environment, transport infrastructure and training and development.

Previous speakers for the Associated Parliamentary Engineering Group have included the Cambridge-MIT Institute about its silent aircraft initiative, Lord Sainsbury and senior representatives from Airbus UK.
