There are no plans for the ‘Make it in Great Britain’ campaign to cover the labelling of British-manufactured products.

The campaign will focus on transforming outdated opinions of UK manufacturing—highlighting Britain's outstanding manufacturing companies, large and small, and our world-beating companies' excellent reputation for innovation.

It is all part of the Government's drive to encourage long-term economic growth and rebalance the economy.
