Press/Media: Expert comment

Release date: 23/1/2017

Description

Karel Williams, professor of accounting and Political economy at the Alliance Manchester Business School, said: “As Greg Clarke, secretary of state for business, energy and industrial strategy, admits, the announced strategy is a consultation and scoping exercise, rather than a policy."

"Skills are a priority, but just £170m of investment has been promised for technical education which, if we remember, is just half of the £350m we were promised would be saved by Brexit every week.”
