Inquiry status: Concluded

Report published. Government response published.

Report published

The Prime Minister's talk of a proper industrial strategy, with more active intervention into the activities of the economy, marks a significant shift from the approach taken by previous Governments of the last 40 years but so far there's little evidence of the strategic framework or the co-ordination across Government necessary to achieve 'an economy that works for all', says the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee.

Scope of the inquiry

The Committee launched an inquiry into the Government's industrial strategy. The inquiry launch follows the inclusion of the term "industrial strategy" into the Department for Business's name and an indication from the new Prime Minister, Theresa May, that her government will explicitly intervene to support certain parts of the economy.

Terms of reference: Industrial strategy
