Commenting on the speech by the Prime Minister, Stephen Phipson, Chief Executive of Make UK, said:


“This is a bold and welcome announcement which will start the process of  building business confidence and healing the economy. The key now is to ensure that these projects get off the ground as a matter of urgency so that the benefits flow down through supply chains, safeguarding and creating as many jobs as possible across all UK regions.

“The funding for schools and FE colleges is especially welcome given they provide the talent pipeline from which industry will draw its workforce of the future. To build on this we need to see a commitment to boosting Apprenticeships which will provide the technical and digital skills of the new industrial age into which the crisis has catapulted many companies.

“Since the start of the crisis Industry has shown just how far it can adapt to meet the needs of the country. It now stands ready to put its shoulder to the wheel of rebuilding our economy and, if it is provided with the right tools to do the job, then the sector will deliver.”
