Editor's Comment 

The recent Budget has generated a mixed response from manufacturers. Although Make UK highlighted that there were some welcome announcements on business rates and the extension of the annual investment allowance, the announcements on skills amounted to little, if any, new money while the delay in the R&D spending target goes against the aim of making the UK a science superpower.
