star this property answer text <p>The Road Investment Strategy provides certainty about road investment ensuring more efficient operation and faster delivery for the English strategic road network. It sets out the vision and investment plan for a five year period from 2015 to 2020, encouraging the supply chain to invest and innovate from the long term certainty that this provides. Highways England is responsible for delivering the strategy and has been set a series of demanding targets by Government, which is regularly assessed, including independent monitoring by the Office of Rail and Road.</p><p>The combination of the measures will save the taxpayer £1.2 billion in the next 5 years and at least £2.6 billion over ten years.

The government has since taken further steps, including the establishment of a National Productivity Investment Fund targeted at the productivity-critical areas of transport, R&amp;D, housing and digital communications. It is also making sure that young people have the skills that British businesses need through the reform of the technical education system and the introduction of T-levels.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Zombie companies are companies that are allowed by banks to delay repayment of a loan so that they effectively only pay the interest due rather than the full loan amount. Bank of England analysis of this ‘loan forbearance’ suggests that only a relatively small proportion of small businesses are in receipt of any form of forbearance (around 6% of SME borrowers in 2013). The Bank concludes that forbearance by banks on loans to small businesses would therefore appear to account for only a small proportion of the weakness in aggregate UK productivity. The Bank’s analysis was published in the Bank’s quarterly bulletin which can be found on the Bank of England’s website.</p> more like this
