The UK has an enviable science and technology heritage and track record. Despite this, we invest less than most other advanced countries in R&D and frequently fail to gain the commercial benefits of our scientific discoveries. This situation has been made worse by a decade of slow growth and the multiple uncertainties caused by Brexit. The Labour party has a range of policies aimed at tackling these issues and thereby improving economic performance and the availability of high-quality jobs. Chi Onwurah MP, Shadow BEIS Minister for Industrial Strategy, will lead a roundtable to outline Labour policies and discuss how they can be practically and effectively delivered.
