2020 Budget

In July, ADS wrote to Chancellor Rishi Sunak to set out priorities for Government support to help our industries recover from the crisis, safeguard capability and jobs, and return to long-term growth.

  • Establish a dedicated long-term supply chain investment fund to support the ability of the UK’s small and medium sized businesses to compete in global markets.
  • Boost investment in aerospace innovation to deliver on the UK’s ‘jet-zero’ ambitions, by doubling funding for the Aerospace Technology Institute and front-load funding for technology projects.
  • Support UK prosperity by maximising the power of procurement and providing attractive conditions for investment
  • Provide targeted resources for strengthened industrial engagement for the UK’s security and resilience sector to unlock its full growth potential.
  • Ensure direct support is provided to protect jobs and retain skills in sectors where employment in worst hit, and with the flexibility employers need to avoid damaging redundancies.
