SCDI responds to the UK Budget 2018

Matt Lancashire, SCDI’s Director of Policy and Public Affairs, commented:

“SCDI welcomes the Chancellor’s budget today and his commitment to commence ending austerity,  alongside the announcement of support for business investment through increased funding to the UK Industrial Strategy and further funding for the British Business Bank.

“However, we must also see this within the context of Brexit, and urge the UK Government  to ensure the best deal for Scottish businesses and a smooth transition period, enabling organisations to prepare themselves for the challenges and opportunities of Brexit.”
