The Chancellor receives frequent updates on the economy to ensure that he is sighted on developments across all sectors. These include science and discovery centres.

Science and Innovation is a priority for this government which is why in June we announced a support package for universities with a range of measures to protect our excellent institutions from the impact of coronavirus.

We will continue to monitor the impact of the restrictions necessary to curb the spread of Covid-19 on businesses and the economy and the need for further support.
