We have received only a brief reply from the Conservative party ahead of the 2017 General Election and have requested a more complete response.

Dear Professor Reid,

Thank you for the letter you and Dr Main sent to the Prime Minister, explaining the Campaign for Science and Engineering's thoughts on what should be included in the Conservative Party's general election manifesto.

We were grateful to receive your comments and I will ensure that they are taken into account.

Our manifesto will be published in due course and will set out how a Conservative government will provide the strong and stable leadership that the country needs.

Thank you again for writing.

Yours sincerely,

David Beckingham

Prime Minister's Office
