star this property answer text <p>At a time of tight control over public spending, this Government has remained committed to supporting our world-class science and research base. We have protected the science ring fence in cash terms for 2015/16. We have also announced investment in science infrastructure of £1.1bn a year rising with inflation to 2021, funding for new programmes such as Quantum Technologies, the Newton Fund, and further investment in high level skills. This means that overall Department for Business, Innovation and Skills investment in science and research will reach £5.8bn in cash terms for Financial Year 2015/16, an increase in the overall allocation compared to recent years.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The review of the Balance of Competences provides the most extensive analysis of the impact of EU membership ever undertaken by the UK or any Member State. Across the entire review, the reports draw on nearly 2,300 pieces of evidence. The reports provide a wealth of evidence that supports the government’s aim to reform the EU to make it more open, competitive, flexible and democratically accountable, with fair treatment of countries inside and outside the eurozone for the benefit of everyone in Europe. This includes the need for a broader and deeper Single Market, greater competitiveness and flexibility, better (and less) regulation and more transparent and accountable institutions and processes.</p> more like this

The effective co-ordination of their respective activities is also supported by the work of a number of cross-industry bodies such as the Rail Delivery Group and National Task Force.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
