Treasury minister questioned over the Government’s Plan for Growth
For its first public evidence session, the Industry and Regulators Committee will speak to the Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury, Kemi Badenoch MP, about the Government’s Plan for Growth. The Plan for Growth was published on 3 March 2021 and replaced the previous UK Industrial Strategy.
Possible questions include:
- Why did the Government abandon the previous UK Industrial Strategy and what is different in the new Plan for Growth?
- Why did the Government choose to disband the Industrial Strategy Council? What will replace the role it played in scrutinising the Government’s work?
- What are the Government’s priorities in the area of innovation? When can the Innovation Strategy be expected?
- What are the Government’s regulatory reform priorities in areas that were previously governed by EU law?
