star this property answer text <p>I regularly meet ministerial colleagues to discuss important issues of common interest, including on matters relating to the UK’s exit from the EU. I am unable to disclose the legal content of those discussions because whether or not the Law Officers have given advice and the content of any such advice is, by convention, not disclosed outside Government. The Convention protects my ability as chief legal adviser to the Government to give full and frank legal advice about some of the most contentious and difficult issues the Government will be considering.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government has made a commitment to increase overall investment in R&amp;D to 2.4% of GDP by 2027, which would be the highest recorded level, and 3% in the longer-term. As part of this, UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) funds research into animal feed and agriculture more widely. However funding is not generally ringfenced for specific research areas and is decided based on the quality of the application.</p><p> </p><p>Innovate UK, now part of UKRI, has provided investment to the Centre for Innovation Excellence in Livestock (CIEL) to cover the start-up costs required to bring together a research base of 12 leading UK academic institutions and over 45 industry partners. The Centre will meet its wider costs through funding obtained from competitively won collaborative research and development grants and industrial partner membership fees.</p><p> </p><p>CIEL has helped to co-fund the development of new research facilities such as the £9.4 million CIEL Spen farm at the University of Leeds to provide a new indoor facility to carry out pig nutrition, behaviour, welfare and production system research and deliver feed recommendations to keep pace with ongoing genetic improvements.</p><p> </p><p>CIEL is one of four Agri-Tech centres that were funded as part of the Agri-Tech Strategy that was launched in 2013 as part of a £160 million commitment to UK Agriculture .</p>

star this property answer text <p>Following GKN’s notification to employees on 4 April about their intention to undertake a phased closure of their Kings Norton site in Birmingham by 2021, the Secretary of State spoke to Hans Buthker (CEO of GKN Aerospace) on 7 April. He explained that this proposal was the result of an internal strategic review by GKN to help the company secure long-term sustainability that will better position it for future growth.</p><p> </p><p>Mr Buthker stressed GKN’s continued commitment to the UK, evidenced by the significant new investment the company is making including, as part of this proposal, at Luton and Portsmouth and in a Global Technology R&amp;D Centre at Filton. This comes on top of GKN’s further announcement last week for £300 million in new investment to ramp up its activities in the fast-growing electric vehicle market.</p><p> </p><p>This is a commercial decision for GKN Aerospace and not in contravention of the deed of covenant agreed between BEIS and Melrose. GKN Aerospace have confirmed the site will remain operational in a phased capacity until 2021, and all affected employees will be supported in seeking new employment within and outside of GKN Aerospace. GKN Aerospace announced they will be increasing overall investment in its other UK sites, with Luton and Portsmouth becoming technology centres of excellence. GKN Aerospace invested record levels into R&amp;D in 2018, including a new world-class Global Technology Centre opening in Bristol in 2020, hosting 300 highly skilled engineers.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>We appreciate this will be an unsettling time for the 172 employees at Kings Norton and will work closely with the company, and local partners, to make sure that they are supported throughout.</p>
