The New Model in Engineering is hopeful of Government backing. Not only do we have the full support of Hereford MP Jesse Norman but Chancellor George Osborne has made encouraging noises.
Jesse Norman posed a question at Prime Minister’s Question Time in January which raised the profile of the project considerably – and then George Osborne mentioned NMITE in a speech on a visit to Rolls Royce – and tweeted about it!
We have been asked to submit our business plan to the Chancellor and we are now hopeful that we will get some support in the Budget. Karen Usher has already met the Treasury in person to go through the plans and rationale.
