Responding to today’s Budget announcement, Ian Brinkley, director at The Work Foundation, said:
“This was the Budget that could have done much more to set out a growth strategy. There were some welcome hints of what could have been – measures that support key industries such as life sciences and the digital sector, help create a modern infrastructure and boost the science base.
“However these tentative measures were overshadowed by more traditional cuts in corporation tax and more Enterprise Zones. Not surprising, this Budget does little to alter long-term prospects for the UK economy.”
