Welcome for modern Industrial Strategy

Steve Brine has welcomed a green paper on a new modern Industrial Strategy which will support businesses in London & the South East to grow and create more high skilled, high paid jobs for local people.

The Industrial Strategy will ensure everyone can benefit from success through ten 'pillars' – including investing in science, research and innovation, and upgrading infrastructure – that underpin a new approach and will identify all of the new opportunities across our economy. This strategy will create the conditions where the winners can emerge and grow in different types of business.

The modern Industrial Strategy will benefit the whole country, and for London & the South East, specifically proposes:

1) Making Britain a global leader in free trade, so companies such as Google and Facebook continue to invest in our great capital.

2) Growing our strengths in particular sectors and technologies, such as 5G mobile network technology in the South East of England.

3) Cultivating our world-leading sectors, such as London's creative industry, by considering how we can use and develop new technology, capitalise on intellectual property rights, and grow talent pipelines.

4) Supporting key road investments, including the Lower Thames Crossing, where the Government will consider the findings of the consultation and take a decision on the location, route and type of crossing in due course.

5) Improving connections for people and businesses through major infrastructure projects, for example through plans for better road and rail connections through the Oxford-Milton Keynes-Cambridge corridor.

6) Making Britain a global leader in free trade, so that businesses in and around the South East can continue to invest and grow.

Steve Brine said: "This is an important step in building a modern, dynamic Industrial Strategy that will deliver more high-skilled, high-wage jobs and improve living standards and drive economic growth.

"Local businesses and workers have the chance to contribute to this vision and submit their views to help us create a high-skilled economy where businesses can grow and more jobs are created.

"This strategy will ensure we are backing are business across the whole country and right here in Hampshire, and ensure more people share in the benefits of its success."

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Jul 2016)
Steve Brine: I am very sorry that this turns out to be my last question to the Prime Minister. I want to thank him for everything he has done for my constituency, where every school is now good or outstanding and the jobless total is down 64% since he took office. As he prepares to leave Downing Street, I encourage him to return to the big society agenda that I know he is so passionate about. Does he...

Uk Economy (29 Jun 2016)
Steve Brine: I agree with the hon. Gentleman’s approach to the debate. Employment rates in our country are now at a record high—in my constituency it is up 60% since 2010. Capital requirements for the banks are some 10 times what they were in the past six years and the budget deficit is down from 11% to 3% this year. I think that that was what the Chancellor was talking about when he referred...
