Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond, has announced that Britain will counter the fallout from Brexit by investing in industries in which Britain is world-leading.
These include new technologies, which Hammond confesses he knows little about.
In doing so, Hammond has abandoned the pledge by his predecessor, George Osborne, to balance the budget by 2020.
