Does Rishi Sunak have an industrial strategy?

Critics claim the Tories lack an industrial strategy and three former business ministers said this fails to prepare Britain for the future. George Parker, political editor at the Financial Times, hears from Greg Clark, one of those former ministers, and industry reporter Sylvia Pfeiffer. In addition, Labor leader Keir Starmer’s recent speeches say a lot about conservatism in the country – an issue that will be key in the general election expected next year. He discusses chief political commentator Robert Shrimsley and the Financial Times’ new Whitehall editor, Lucy Fisher.
