CaSE’s initial response to the Chancellor, Jeremy Hunt’s, Autumn Statement on the 22nd November 2023.
The Chancellor’s Autumn Statement focussed on businesses, with science and technology a prominent theme in his plans to support an innovative economy.
I’m encouraged by the ideas that emerged. They show Government thinking creatively about new ways to support science in the long term, such as endowments, and seeding support across the breadth of the science economy.
The measures announced on pensions are welcome progress and are a good first step towards transforming the investment landscape for innovative companies in the UK.
