Labour’s plans for investment in science & technology

18 June 2019 - Breakfast meeting - Login for venue

Peter Dowd MP, Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury

Over a long term, companies and industries based on science and technology have contributed strongly to economic growth and the quality of life. For such reasons there is a growing consensus that significantly increasing the current relatively low level of UK investment in science and technology is a good way to address the economic challenges faced by the UK. Labour has a range of policies for increasing investment to help UK companies and industry sectors become more competitive, increase productivity, and provide more high quality jobs. Peter Dowd MP, Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury will lead a roundtable discussion to look at the thorny questions of where additional investment is needed, and how it should be wisely spent.
