Commitment by chancellor signals the UK’s desire to remain a world leader in science and innovation.

Commenting on today’s budget, Professor Paul Hardaker, CEO of the Institute of Physics, said: “Today’s budget provides a welcome and major boost for UK science and technology, and sends a clear message from government.
