Science and the Spending Review 2015

21 Oct 2015

Stuart Andrew MP (Pudsey, Horsforth & Aireborough) has secured a Westminster Hall Debate on Wednesday 21 October 2015 at 11.00 on the topic of ‘UK science budget and 2015 Spending Review’.

Britain needs a strong and competitive university sector to provide the graduates for the workforce of tomorrow, reskill the workforce of today, translate research to benefit businesses and contribute to productivity and the overall well-being of society by providing new opportunities to participate and study for a degree. BIS is not a protected department. As a result the Spending Review poses both challenges and opportunities for future investment in science.
