The current valuations, which assess the schemes as at 31 March 2016, are in the process of being finalised. As I announced in a Written Ministerial Statement on 6 September 2018, these valuations indicate employers need to pay more towards the schemes because of changes to the Office for Budget Responsibility’s long-term GDP growth forecasts, reflected in the SCAPE discount rate. The new employer contribution rates will take effect in 2019 and will apply for a 4-year period.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Chancellor has been clear that raising productivity is the only way to expand the economy in the long term. Doing so will mean encouraging growth in the manufacturing sector, boosting the adoption of technology and enabling more British firms to export. That’s why we increased the National Productivity Investment Fund to £37bn at Budget 2018, and have announced a wide range of productivity enhancing measures at previous fiscal events. Most recently this has included £81 million for a new extreme photonics centre in Oxfordshire, £45 million for the European Bioinformatics Institute, and £79 million for a new supercomputer to be hosted at Edinburgh University.</p><p> </p> more like this
