Comment on the Chancellor’s ‘Plan for Jobs’


Please find a comment below on the Chancellor’s ‘Plan for Jobs’ which was announced today.

Stephen Lotinga, Chief Executive of the Publishers Association, said:

“We welcomed the Chancellor’s plan for jobs today, and are reassured by the steps the government is taking to support employers and employees. We were also pleased to see the government’s new apprenticeships incentives and look forward to working with our members to create new, exciting opportunities.

“In order to get the publishing industry thriving again we need the government to ensure there is a fair market for books, including support for bookshops. It is also vital that schools have funding for the resources their students need and that publishers are able to access their key overseas markets.”
