Manufacturing: Spring Budget 2017 Response

Spring budget 2017

Comments provided by Head of Manufacturing Caroline Milton.

Caroline Milton - Menzies AccountantFollowing the Chancellor’s Spring Budget 2017 update, Menzies Manufacturing sector team have reviewed the impact of Philip Hammond’s announcement upon the UK manufacturing community.
