"The Liberal Democrats have helped to create more than a million jobs in the private sector - now we want to help create a million more. Manufacturing is absolutely crucial to that and UK manufacturing growth hitting a two-year high is fantastic news.
"These figures are welcome but there is a long way to go. For years Labour and Conservative governments let British manufacturing collapse, the Liberal Democrats are determined to rebuild it.
"That's why we are putting billions of pounds into high-tech manufacturing, science and renewable energy. And it's why we are massively increasing the number of apprenticeships to make sure employers get the skilled workers they need."
