Mr Iain Wright
To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, what his policy is on future government support for the Office for Life Sciences.

George Freeman

Our manifesto committed to support the long-term economic plan by fostering research, innovation and jobs in the life science industry. We will therefore continue to invest in growing the life sciences sector, to help people compete and win in the intense global race for high value, high knowledge jobs, to unleash the potential of innovation, and to drive investment and growth in the UK economy. The Office of Life Sciences will continue to be an important part of that.
