Spending Review to fight coronavirus, deliver promises and invest in UK’s recovery

The UK Government will provide billions of pounds in the fight against coronavirus and invest in the UK’s recovery, the Chancellor announced today.

Today’s Spending Review sets out UK Government Departments’ budgets for the coming year and includes some encouraging announcements on research and development and education. 

Sunak said "The funding for the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy will cement the UK as a science superpower through R&D and innovation spending, continue to support businesses through access finance schemes and stimulate the economic recovery post Covid."
