However, HS2 Ltd has already engaged with thousands of British businesses, to aid them in winning work on HS2. So far 98% of contracts for HS2, awarded directly and through the supply chain, have been won by British companies, with many more opportunities to come in the future. HS2 Ltd has let around £10bn worth of contracts and by the end of next year that will be around £20bn.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government’s Long-term Economic Analysis of EU Exit (November 2018) provides a publicly available assessment of the possible long-term economic impacts of the UK's future relationship with the EU under different scenarios including a no deal scenario. The analysis summarises theory and evidence that openness to trade can increase productivity and long-term growth by exposing firms to competition, best practice, new technologies and through investment. This can contribute to higher wages, employment and households' living standards. A reduction in trade volumes between countries would be expected to lower productivity and long-term growth. In the Government’s analysis a no deal scenario is estimated to lower long-run GDP by 9% to 6% compared with today’s arrangements. In the analysis, this reflects the combined impact of trade frictions which reduce trade and affect firms' gross output, their productivity and households' purchasing power.</p><p>The Bank of England’s EU Withdrawal Scenarios and Monetary and Financial Stability report (published November 2018) also found that openness to trade affects productivity. The report’s disorderly exit scenario found a ‘large’ reduction in productivity.</p><p>These analyses are scenarios not forecasts. The scenarios illustrate what could happen under a range of key assumptions.</p>

In September 2018, we published the Code of Conduct for Data-Driven Health and Care Technology, which clearly sets out the behaviours we expect from those developing AI and related technologies. The Code was updated in February 2019 based on feedback, including from industry partners, and we are working with them to develop case studies showing good practice in complying with the Code. We are also developing tools to help businesses comply with the Code of Conduct.</p><p>The Office for Artificial Intelligence and UK Research and Innovation have announced centres for doctoral training in AI-enabled healthcare across the UK.</p><p>The Office for Life Sciences has established five Centres of Excellence in digital pathology and radiology with AI, supported by an initial £50 million Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund investment and a further £50 million of scale up funding from the Department of Health and Social Care. The centres are working with NHS and industry partners, including innovative small and medium-sized enterprises, to develop pioneering AI-enabled pathology and radiology tools.</p><p>In addition we are also working closely with Health Education England as they follow through on the recommendations made by the Topol Review <em>Preparing the healthcare workforce to deliver the digital future</em>.</p><p>In March 2019, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence published its <em>Evidence Standards Framework for Digital Health Technologies</em>, outlining the evidence required by businesses to demonstrate the effectiveness and economic impact of digital health technologies.</p><p>Taken together these steps, and others, will ensure there is a clear framework for the development and use of AI in the healthcare sector including the skills, a clear path to market, and a rigorous process for ensuring the safety, efficacy and ethics of the tools developed, deployed and used.</p><p> </p>
