unstar this property answer text <p>Centrica Storage Ltd’s decision to close the Rough gas storage facility is a commercial decision based on the age of the asset and the costs of repair. As such, we do not have the information to undertake a comprehensive assessment of the effect on wholesale gas prices of maintaining the gas storage facility at Rough. However, Rough was unavailable in the market last winter, and we believe this was largely expected by market participants so we don’t expect any significant effect on prices.</p> more like this

The Government will continue its longstanding programme of support for the sector’s competitiveness. The UK has been very successful in attracting inward investment from automotive companies. Companies such as Nissan and Toyota have continued to re-invest, thanks to our highly-skilled workforce, strong partnership between government and industry, and long-term investment in new technology and innovation.</p><p>We are determined to ensure that the UK continues to be one of the most competitive locations in the world for automotive and advanced manufacturing. This includes seeking a tariff and barrier-free comprehensive free trade deal in goods and services with the EU for a new, mutually beneficial customs agreement that allows cross-border trade to be as frictionless as possible.</p><p> </p> more like this

For this reason, I am working with the Secretary of State for Transport to ensure that upgrading infrastructure is one of the key pillars of the Government’s emerging Industrial Strategy.</p><p>In addition to our work on the emerging Industrial Strategy, the Government continues both to invest in transport infrastructure and to provide new powers to local areas, to ensure local transport services meets the needs of businesses and the wider community. As such we are investing £46bn to operate and enhance the railway between 2014-19 and a further £900m, through the Local Growth Fund, towards schemes that improve rail and bus infrastructure. We have also given local communities new ways to improve local transport for the benefit of businesses. For example, the Bus Services Act gives new powers to local authorities and bus operators to work with local businesses to provide the services they need.</p>
