    Design is a British success story

    Members of the All-Party Parliamentary Design & Innovation Group recently took part in a rountable discussion with Baroness Neville Role, the Minister for Intellectual Property.

    Our members took the opportunity to discuss some key topics surrounding intellectual property, including:

    • Cuts to design education (including a decrease in takeup at GCSE level)

    A full write up of the session will be posted soon.
