The autumn statement saw us provide further investment in relation to R&D. Indeed, the national productivity fund has been set up to make sure that we can fund infrastructure, including R&D, more broadly. However, it is not just through physical infrastructure that our country will be successful—we need to invest in our people and in human capital as well. Through this Budget we are investing in human capital in skills, education and training to create a strong economy that works for everyone.
