To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the impact on rural areas of the proposed Industrial Strategy.
9 February 2017
The industrial strategy is an opportunity to make the most of the diverse strengths of all of the UK’s cities and regions, including rural areas. Government is already taking a range of steps to improve productivity in rural areas, for example through investment in digital infrastructure. Our industrial strategy Green Paper seeks views on how we can take further steps to drive improved productivity in growth in all parts of the country, including rural areas.
