Read the DUP's response to CaSE's letter, setting out the party's commitments that are relevant to the science and engineering sector ahead of the 2015 Election
In the run-up to the 2015 UK General Election, CaSE has written to the leader of every political partywith at least one MP in Westminster, sending them our election briefings and asking them to set out their manifesto commitments that are relevant to the science and engineering sector.
Below is the response from the DUP Spokesperson on Economic & Finance matters and Education, Science and Technology , Sammy Wilson.
Thank you very much for your letter and for the enclosed information regarding the case for science and engineering investment.
I fully understand the importance of investment in these areas of the economy. It is something which as a Party we have given priority to through the Northern Ireland Executive where obviously we do have a greater degree of influence than perhaps we have at Westminster and I appreciate you giving me some ideas in the information you have passed on.
