star this property answer text <p>As my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister set out in her Florence speech, we want to continue working together with the EU to promote the long-term economic development of our continent. This includes continuing to take part in those specific policies and programmes which are greatly to the UK and the EU’s joint advantage, such as those that promote science, education and culture – and those that promote our mutual security.</p><p> </p><p>In our Future Partnership Paper, “Collaboration on Science and Innovation”, we have made clear that the UK will seek an ambitious science and innovation agreement with the EU. The UK would like to work with the EU on designing this agreement, and would welcome a full and open discussion about all of the options for continued collaboration, including options for UK participation in EU and Euratom programmes, agencies and other bodies.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is committed to ensuring that the UK continues to lead the world in fusion research. We have taken action to secure the future of the Joint European Torus (JET) facility by guaranteeing the UK’s share of JET costs until the end of 2020.

star this property answer text <p>The Government’s Industrial Strategy supports manufacturing across many sectors in a number of ways through business support, skills and R&amp;D.</p><p>Through Business Support:</p><ul><li>The Government has undertaken a business productivity review and is currently looking at how to improve manufacturing processes with 3000 industries in the North West in the Pilot for Made Smarter. The learnings from this pilot, and the conclusions of the review will benefit industry in the future.</li><li>We are making sure small businesses across all sectors including agricultural machinery, textiles and engineering, can find the information they need on their finance options and additional support in information and guidance:</li><li>The British Business Bank publishes (in partnership with industry) the Business Finance Guide, which also has an interactive online version.</li><li>The Business Support Helpline and the network of 38 Growth Hubs also provide advice and signpost businesses to sources of information and guidance. We would encourage the industries to take advantage of this resource.</li><li>78,000 SMEs have been supported in various way by the British Business Bank. The Small Business Commissioner helps with payment issues, dispute resolution and sourcing advice across the UK.</li></ul><p>Through developing Skills:</p><ul><li>The Government has developed a wide range of manufacturing apprenticeships. There are now specific apprenticeships for textile manufacturing, at both intermediate and advanced levels and a significant number of engineering apprenticeships across a range of sectors.</li><li>The Government has introduced the apprenticeship levy across the UK to encourage sustained employer investment in high quality apprenticeships. By 2020 the total annual apprenticeship investment in England will be almost £2.45bn (in 2019/20); double what was spent in 2010-11. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will receive £460m, as their fair share of the apprenticeship levy, in 2019/20. This will allow businesses to develop workforces that have the skills they need for the future.</li></ul><p>Through supporting R&amp;D:</p><ul><li>The Government has increased the rate of R&amp;D tax credit to 12% to encourage businesses to invest in the future and as a step towards meeting the 2.4% target. As we try to put the UK at the forefront of advanced sustainable agriculture, this tax credit will provide opportunities for both manufacturers of agricultural machinery and small-scale engineering firms to invest in innovation.</li></ul><p>We are open to having discussions with all sectors of business and industry to discuss how we can support them and would welcome the engagement from manufacturers of agricultural machinery, textile industry and small-scale engineering firms.</p>
