Editor's Comment 

The Chancellor’s recent Autumn Statement has resulted in a range of opinions among industry leaders, highlighting both commendations and reservations within the manufacturing sector. The most notable was Stephen Phipson, Chief Executive of Make UK, who was pleased with the Chancellor’s strategy for providing long-awaited policy certainty crucial for investment decisions. The permanence of full expensing and initiatives to boost engineering apprenticeships align with industry aspirations, prompting Phipson to call for seizing the gauntlet and unlocking transformative growth, which is difficult not to agree with.
