Preservation Of The UK's Industrial Heritage

EDM number 824 in 2013-14, proposed by Andrew Stunell on 29/11/2013.
Categorised under the topic of Manufacturing industries.

That this House is concerned that the future of two historic textile machines, unique examples of innovative nylon and polyester yarn-making equipment from the 1950s, may be at risk following reorganisation of exhibits at the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) in Manchester; notes that the Fluflon and air-jet weaving machines are irreplaceable artefacts from the UK's hey-day of artificial fibre textile development; and calls on the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport to work with MOSI to secure their safe preservation for posterity.

This motion has been signed by a total of 21 MPs.
